SUSTAINABILITY AND NATURALNESS
ORGANIC AND BIODYNAMIC PRINCIPLES
In the vineyards we work under organic and biodynamic principles. We abolished the use of pesticides, herbicides, chemical fertilisers and insecticides. We try to create an environment as friendly as possible for the proliferation of good insects, wild animals and microorganisms in the soil, in order to improve the life in the vineyard. We prepare our own natural fertilising compost for enhancing soil life.
The whole vinification process is carried out without using sulfites or other preservatives. In a sulfite free environment, yeasts ferment more freely and produce a finer and extraordinary aroma. An extremely small amount of sulfites is added before bottling for the maximum genuineness and enjoyment of the consumers.
In our wines we do not use any animal derived product, maintaining its purity and naturalness at the highest. Treating and manipulating the grapes and the wine the less we can, guarantee genuineness, fragrance and identity.
On the roof of the production winery we have 418 solar panels that provide 100% of the electric power we need in the cellar. Green energy for a better environment around us.
After long years of research and development we have identified in our Colvendrame Estate in Refrontolo, in the hills between Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, our own selected indigenous yeast. With this one, our white wines are fermented. Meanwhile red wines are fermented on their own skins. Vinification process is carried out totally with wild yeasts, in this way we obtain mere spontaneous fermentations. Indigenous wild yeasts for a maximum expression of our terroir.
