The management of vines in organic farming involves the use of products of natural origin for the fertilization and protection of the vines, the prohibition of GMOs, and the care of the plantation is strictly based on manual work. In order to ensure the health of the plantations, the company's specialists emphasize natural vegetation, which facilitates the creation of a balanced and diverse environment, compensating for the lack of treatments with systemic substances and ensuring the lack of moisture. Also, the wine materials after processing are used as ecological fertilizers for the vines.
