Winemaker's Notes

Our vineyard extends over more than 60 hectares, all of them certified by the different control organizations of Organic Agriculture. During the entire year the farm is subject to an exhaustive and continuous monitoring. The cycle starts in November with the analysis of the soil and a careful pruning process.

Dive into the passionate world of wine made from organically cultivated grapes. Chemical products of synthesis, pesticides, herbicides, etc. have no place in our daily tasks. We only use environmentally friendly organic products, which, apart from not harming man's health, contribute to improving the taste of the products obtained. Organic matter from crushed vine shoots is used to cover the earth for the first months of the year.

Critical Acclaim

"Light red. Suave, understated strawberry, dried cherry and floral scents are underscored by gentle minerality. Light-bodied red berry flavors are crisp and impressively focused, with a late note of cherry skin adding pleasantly bitter grip to the sweet finish. This lithe, precise wine, made from organic grapes certified by the Eccysa group, is very nicely balanced. "
