Winemaking and philosophy
We are convinced that there are many good reasons for making wine organically, but there is no counter-argument.
What are organic wines? And what biodynamic wines mean?
In our case organic wine is different from other wine in the following ways:
▪ No use of artificial yeast in alcoholic fermentation
▪ No use of artificial bacteria in maloactic fermentation
▪ Sulfur content is below 100 mg/l
▪ Only chlorine-free corks used
▪ No use of chemicals to improve, clarify or stabilise
▪ natural, sustainable methods of cultivation
