A small family winery has its own cycles. We work in a spirit of gratitude to further develop what generations before us created, while preserving the scope for future generations to take their decisions, too. For us, an attentive, sensitive style of husbandry is both a duty and a precondition for living soils and wines with a character that is clearly expressive of the terroir.
Careful, harmonized work on the vines and care of the soil, controlled yields and first-class sites are the main pillars in our drive for quality. That includes the labor-intensive process of composting cow dung as the only source of fertilizer for the vines.
Great importance must be attached to the best possible match between grape variety and terroir. We are at pains to combine our instinct for the world of nature, the wealth of knowledge built up by our forebears and the findings of modern viticulture. This also includes our strategy of taking cuttings to propagate carefully selected old top-quality vines. Vineyards with a high level of biological diversity produce complex wines full of harmony and character. Our work in the cellar is simple and traditional; good sites and first-class grapes make too much technology unnecessary.
