love thy earth as thyself
Our vineyard produces organic grapes which are grown without the use of any synthetic chemicals such as fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides, insecticides or pesticides in general. Equally we do not use any GMO – we only use copper sulphate, sulphur, propolis and seaweed. We intervene as little as possible during the fermenting process.
a story of passion and integrity
The vineyard is fertilised withgreen manure and we plant the vines alternating therows with nitrogen-rich legume plantations, good for the soil, which are then mowed in spring.
We harvest the grapes by hand and these are immediately wheeled off to the “cantina” to be de-stemmed and put in vats and then left to ferment naturally, with the skins still attached, without adding any yeast. We only use small doses of sulphur dioxide (even smaller than those sanctioned by the organic agricultural protocols) and only during the decanting process.
Our wine is left to age in steel barrels and the clarification happens during decanting. We do not filter our wines.
