The 49 acres of our farm are surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and woods, at an altitude of 150 m above sea level. Our main goal has been to produce wines that reflect the uniqueness of this territory.  Our respect for the land and the grapes has found an answer in the biodynamic cultivation movement founded by Rudolf Steiner.


The conversion of the fields to biodynamic cultivation has taken several years, and the maintenance of the land and vines is now an ongoing life process.


During the wine making process we pay strict attention to quality control. For fermentation, we only use the yeasts already present on the grapes. We keep sulfites levels low and do not add tannins or other additives.  We firmly believe in a wine that reflects the geographical area where it was produced; not in concocted wines fashioned to suit the vagaries of the moment.
