GOOD TO KNOW

Our wines are unfiltered and unfined (hence the presence of a slight natural deposit in the bottles) .
We allow them as much time as they need to mature, as some wines require more time than others for their fermentation. This can sometimes delay the bottling process and lead to temporary shortages.
In the vineyards, too, we respect nature and natural processes.
We cultivate the soil to control weeds – we do not use herbicides.
To protect the vines from fungal diseases, we use certified organic products (copper sulphate against mildew, flowers of sulphur against powdery mildew ).
We do not use insecticides.
