Our vineyards are managed for low yield. We don’t use irrigation, and cut back each plant as needed to allow it to ripen loosely. This is a conscious choice, to concentrate the essential characteristics of each variety and the contributions of the soil. The vines are subject to water stress, in poor and rocky soils, which increases root depth to get the best out of them. We aim to keep production per hectare below 4,500 kilograms, about half the average production of similar vineyards.
We are constantly pruning, defoliating, trimming, cleaning, combing and generally taking care of all our vineyards. We harvest manually, with a first selection of grapes that are stored in boxes of 15kg, which are taken straight into cold storage as they are picked. We take care of the grapes at all times to ensure that at the moment of processing they will be in optimal condition and at the right temperature.
This is how we obtain healthy and well-matured grapes that give us clean and honest wines, defined by the climatology of the area, the altitude, orientation, and soil types. Wines that embody our careful craftmanship and the character of our mountain terroir.
