To preserve the special identity of their vineyards they assiduously follow organic practises. From the start the goal is to create and sustain the maximum harmony possible between vineyard, climate, soil and mankind. Vines have never been treated with herbicides, chemical pesticides, insecticides or soluble mineral fertilisers. Their immune system is reinforced by special infusions that are made with nettles, equisetum and yarrow and biodynamic preparations. A variety of grasses, including aromatic varieties, are planted to encourage biodiversity, maintain the contents of the humus and improve the soil structure. Grapes are thinned, leaving no more than four bunches per vine. Before the harvest, the grapes are prunned again on the vine in order to eliminate any individual grapes that are mouldy due to meteorological conditions or imperfect in any way. This same control is repeated throughout the harvest.
Spontaneous fermentation starts after one or two days of maceration.
The temperature is automatically controlled so that it does not exceed 30°C.
The must macerates for two or three weeks, depending on the vintage
