VINEYARD AND CELLAR

The philosophy of my work

In all I have about 4 hectares of vineyards and 6 hectares of olive groves: it’s a very small enterprise.
Since 2009 I have not used synthetic chemical phytosanitary products but only natural ones such as copper and sulphur.
The farm is officially run under the conversion to organic farming system. The vineyards were replanted using Guyot’s French technique at a planting density of 5700 plants/Ha. There are a few simple main phases to my work in the vineyard: Good winter manuring using dung from our horses, pruning for lymphatic flows, excellent selection of buds and shoots, and great care of the leaf wall with continuous topping and precise defoliation to avoid moisture deposits and water accumulation as well as preventing burning by the sun.
The vineyard is not irrigated and irrigation is only relied on in a scorching summer.
The cellar is still very small. The work has changed a great deal in only a few years. I made wine in the first year using equipment hired from the agritourism garage. Then I worked in a cellar 10 km away from the vineyards for three years. Finally, since 2012 I have made wine on the farm since I converted part of the family home into an emergency cellar while waiting for the definitive cellar completely underground beneath the vineyard to be completed.

There isn’t much to say about what I do in the cellar as I limit myself to playing nearly all of the game in the vineyard, harvesting only fantastic high quality grapes.
When you have this quality, all the rest of the work is downhill. In addition to my passion, what I use most is technology against the cold to control the fermentation temperature of the musts and to keep the aromas lighter as they are damaged by organisations which while certainly having a stronger presence on the market, do not represent me.
I like my fine and elegant wines, unpretentious and never anonymous.
It is not easy to start with nothing and immediately obtain the wine you have in mind. With time and with each harvest you want the wine that is the maximum expression of your land more and more.
