Sustainable
Farming

Producing quality wine requires a favourable climate, unique soil, and skilled winemakers. Harvesting grapes requires a gentle touch to avoid harming the ripe fruit or the vine itself.

We are proud to offer
quality wine with very
low environmental impact.

LOW ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

Organic farming

In order for a wine to be labeled organic, both the farming of the grapes and the wine production itself must be organic. This means that the grapes are grown without chemical fertilizers, weed- and pestcontrol. In order for the farming to be certified organic, it has to have been conducted organically for at least three years in a row.

IN HARMONY WITH NATURE

Biodiversity

The organic farmer fights pests, molds and weeds with natural methods and natural, non-mineral, fertilizers. Organic farming benefits the plant and animal life on the farm, and ensures that vineyard workers are not exposed to chemicals while at work.

SAY NO TO TOXINS

Organic makes a difference

Organic farming is more labour intense and the harvest is often smaller, which can affect the price to the consumer. However, every bottle of organic wine sold is important for the conservation of biodiversity and reduces the amount of toxins in the countryside.

BOOSTING BIODIVERSITY

Organic farming prohibits the use of chemical pesticides. Instead, weeds and pests are controlled by grazing sheep, bugs and other natural agents.

CRAFTMANSHIP

Organic production means less additives and less sulphur being used in wine production.

HEALTH AND SAFETY

Organic farming benefits biodiversity and the ban of chemical pesticides and herbicides also improves working conditions for people in the vineyard.
