Gentle handling of the fruit is our principle at the winery
We are dedicated to farming organically while improving our land’s biodiversity. We believe that the healthier the vineyard, the better the fruit and, of course, the wine. In other words, by nourishing the land and treating it with respect, we know that the land will give us back its finest fruits.
Organic and committed to Quality
We are the main exporting winery of wines made only with grapes certified organic from
Argentina, among the most awarded and with the greatest amount of certifications in the world. We make high quality organic wines, combining French production techniques with the exceptional characteristics of the Gualtallary terroir. With pride, we have
demonstrated to the world our commitment to quality, backed by recognition from major
international publications and critics, sharing rankings with labels of the main regions of the Old and New World, whether from conventional or organic and sustainable production, like ours.
Excellence in composting
It is the key to regenerative viticulture. Good compost provides nutrients and physical
structure of the soil, mitigates erosion, provides better porosity and allows the development of micro organisms and the biodiversity of the earth. Furthermore, it generates the
healthy plant growth, helps with disease resistance and reduces fungicides.
Composting is a form of recycling: we take matter from the ground and return it to better
conditions. It is a vital component in the natural circle of soils.
The animals – sheep, cows, horses, chickens, ducks and local fauna – constitute a excellent source of compost material. Achieving excellence in composting takes time to mature. Our team carries out studies and measurements to control temperature, humidity, pH and the conductivity of the compost evolution, in order to improve the organic matter, better conserve the soil and increase the beneficial interactions between plants and microorganisms in the vineyards.
Our natural path led us to certification of biodynamic practices.
Just as with regenerative agriculture, with biodynamics we seek to give back to the
land of what we take from it when we cultivate. The vitality of the soil is the priority.
The principles of biodynamic agriculture are:
• Work with the rhythms of the earth and the cosmos
• Improve Soil and Plant Health
• Offer regenerative solutions for the future
• Respect the environment and biodiversity
• Contribute to social and economic health
• Treat animals with respect
Under the gaze of biodynamic agriculture, our farm is an organism in which plants, animals,
the cosmos and human beings are together integrated.
Organically nurtered vine roots penetrate deep into the soil where they absorb the trace minerals that help give our wines their authentic regional taste. For this reason, organically grown grapes can express the purity, intensity and varietal character of the local terroir.
Our organically grown grapes offer a quality of fruit and vibrancy of taste that is unparalleled in the world of ordinary wines. Organically tended vines tend to produce lower yields with greater concentration of flavor (unlike chemically fed grapes), which allow their unique flavors to shine through.
Organic crops are grown in harmony with nature without using chemicals such as pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers. Organic agriculture uses natural fertilizers such as compost.
Organic agriculture and production helps us protect and sustain the land and the environment for future generations.
