The vineyard

80 years old dry farmed vineyard. This vineyard is worked manually and with ancient animal traction techniques without herbicides.

The main characteristics of these vineyards is their condition and their ancestral management with the old methods transferred from generation to generation. It is respect for nature and peasant work, which on a human scale, result in a quality of fruit that is the basis of a good wine.
