According to our philosophy we conduct all works in the wineyards in full respect of nature, use only eco compatible products (zolfo and rame) and do all works by hand: from the pruning, weeding, hoeing to the harvest. When harvesting the grapes are selected by hand and according to the quality of the year destemmed and subequently pressed only partially.
