Respecting these vineyards means to acknowledge that these vineyards existed before we began to farm them and with the right attention, namely organic farming, they will continue after we cease to cultivate them.
We appreciate our older vines as we believe that they have a deep connection with our land. We know that while these plants generate less fruit, the fruit they do produce offers more complexity and concentrated flavors to wines. These older vines have the ability to transmit their micro-climate and terroir’s exceptional complexity and consistency to the wines.
This leads us to promote the cultivation of indigenous varietals. These indigenous grapes make wines that showcase and reflect their unique place.
We cut some of the grape bunches that are still unripe. We do this to reduce the production which will in turn ensure that the plant’s few selected clusters will fully obtain the characteristics and the identity of the soil. Our yields never exceed 1.600 bottles per acre.
We rely on our experience to determine when to harvest the various vineyards; this results in wines with unique identity and great balance.
