Biodynamic farming is based on a close connection between the vineyard and the winemaker. Without any pesticides nor fertilizers, we cannot ‘pilot’ the production, so we have to look carefully at the soil and the plants to find out what they need. The vineyard guides us, not the opposite.
We use biodynamic preparations that are connections between the animal and vegetable kingdoms, in specific moments during the year to energize and revitalize the soil: 500 Horn Manure, is used to increase the fertility of the soil; 501 Horn Silica, made of crushed quartz, is used to enhance photosynthesis. Both preparations are diluted in water, following the principles of dynamization and then sprayed on the soil and on the vines.
During the winter months we also use green manuring: an organic soil improvement method using a crop of mixed plants, which are harvested, investing the soil with nitrogen, organic matter and new life force. Our wines are crafted from premium hand-picked red and white grapes; we try to limit the use of trucks so as to reduce CO2 emissions and preserve the soil.
Through biodynamic farming we do not alter the natural cycles of the vines, so our products are healthy, unique and typical.
