In the management of our vineyards all growing operations aim to respect the environment and protect plant health. Since the 1980s we have used the technique of growing grass under the rows of vines in order to prevent hillside erosion and mineralisation of the soil while creating an ideal microhabitat for a multitude of herbs and useful insects.
The practice of growing grass means the use of chemical fertilizers is avoided and also greatly reduces the use of pesticides by applying companion planting principles.
Our grapes are all strictly hand-picked and within very few hours are taken to the winery, where fermentation takes place naturally thanks to the wild yeasts present in the grapes. Our wines contain very few sulphites, with no more than the amount necessary for disinfecting the grapes being used. These sulphites do not become chemically stabilised, which means that some natural deposits can be found in bottles.
