Biodynamic agriculture is based on the idea that nature has its own balance.
According to the biodynamic agriculture this balance keeps soil naturally with all its organisms to obtain – in the case of wine – high quality grapes.
According to the guidelines dictated in the beginning by the philosopher Rudolf Steiner, the basic principles are the care of natural resources and vital processes obtained from the synergy of earthly and cosmic forces.
Soil preparation and work in vineyard
Biodynamic agriculture doesn’t use, as the organic agricolture, chemical and synthetics products (fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides) and genetically modified organisms.
Natural preparations decoctions, fermented and minerals, as quartz powder, are given in homoeopathic doses, according to the phases phases of the Moon and the Sun.
The soil is regenerated and revitalised with traditional methods: the use of manure and the planting of leguminous plants .
With this method, the vineyards have a very good roots to withstand periods of heat or rain. As prophylactic treatment is spray the plants with infusions of nettle, Chamomile, propolis, fennel, dandelion, valerian and bark.
Work in cellar
The lunar calendar is followed also in wine cellar during the bottling process and physical or chemical interventions aren’t used during the fermentation period, but the must ferments in their native yeasts.
Biodynamic wines, made from a high quality of grapes, are characterized by great vivacity and intense color and they are an expression of the territory and the environment that changes annually, for this reason every year the wine is different.
In our farmhouse, thanks to the biodynamic agriculture, we rediscovered the engagement to the work of the Earth, to the observation of the plant and, and we rediscoverdethe pleausereto consider and revise “dynamically” methods of grape growing and wine production.
“DEMETER“, the world’s first certification institution active since 1927 and present in 42 countries, certify our wine, giving us the privilege to be one ofg the 50 manufacturer across Italy.
