Heroic Viticulture: nature and passion
 

The characteristics of the terrain and its steep slopes call for challenging manual labour both for cultivation and harvesting, when we fill slatted crates with around 18 kg of grapes each. Due to the steep slopes and narrow paths, the crates often have to be carried by hand to the head of the rows to be taken to the winery for vinification.
We care for our vineyards without using pesticides or other chemicals. We only use Integrated Pest Management and organic farming techniques to protect the environment and the quality of our wines.
