Outstanding Wine in the Making
With unbounded passion for the craft of winemaking,
By nurturing healthy soil,
And through incessant care for nature's gifts
that were here before us
It is no accident that we have made it our goal to create outstanding wine in an ecological vineyard.
As a family of winemakers, we are well aware of the fact that the excellent wines that we create, originate in the vineyards that we so carefully nurture, and that these vineyards are an integral part of the region's age-old ecological balance. Out of true concern for the environment which provides for our livelihood, we decided to implement an ecological management methodology that preserves the fragile balance between nature and humankind and is directly
Long ago we came to the understanding that each of our actions has a counter-effect. Just as the inconspicuous flutter of a butterfly's wings can lead to a sequence of future events, so to does cultivating a vineyard plot cause changes to its surroundings. There are those that we can see and feel... and then there are those changes that, despite being extremely small and supposedly inconsequential, have just as significant an impact.
In everything we do we actively seek to go back to the way things were and reduce the changes we effect; to formulate innovative, ecological, thoughtful production strategies; to preserve wildlife habitats; to form a closer connection to the earth
To create finer wines and while doing so, to preserve a healthier growing environment. Yes, it is possible to do both, with much consideration, determination and lots of love.
Through comprehensive research, active experimentation and learning that never stops. And when we set objectives, we do so with the intent of meeting them. Here are our objectives:
- To become intimately familiar with every inch of our vineyards and their surroundings.
- To reduce our use of fertilizers and pesticides and to implement eco-friendly pest control methods.
- To allocate lands for natural habitats by establishing islands of vegetation and rocks within the vineyards.
- To form ecological corridors that will allow animals to move about naturally.
- To construct nesting compartments for predatory birds, and to increase the animal variety in the area.
- To sow local vegetation across vineyard lands to preserve the existing flora
- To minimize soil erosion.
