TO MAKE A GREAT WINE MEANS TO TRANSFORM
Vineyards from 35 to 75 years old with limited yield per hectare to maximize the grape quality, the terroir and production area. Herb mowing is hand done to avoid any herbicide, sowing of 20+ different variety of herbs that help plants avoiding stress and acting as natural fertilizer in addition to “humus”. Natural starter using only yeasts that are naturally present on the skins of the berries, in order to obtain not standard wines, but products that really reflect the territory and production area.
