On completion of the three-year procedure required under European Regulation 203/2012, our company has obtained organic certification.

We take great pride in this success, which bears witness to our on-going research into innovative products and solutions, while maintaining our tradition and the naturalness of our processes and ingredients. For example:

  • Yeasts are selected from our grapes, to conserve the full character of the terroir;
  • as soon as the grapes have been harvested, they are cooled with a jet of dry ice, enabling us to take a highly fragrant must into our cellars and so conserve the bouquet later found in the wine.

But what does production of an organic wine involve? Previously, reference could only be made to “wine produced from organically grown grapes”, whereas today the entire wine production process is regulated by specific standards. The Bio logo can be exhibited only by producers who:

  • use only grapes grown with organic methods, e., without manmade chemicals and without GMOs;
  • make wine using only oenological products and processes authorised by regulation 203/2012, avoiding the addition of the chemicals routinely used to adjust the wine.

At the moment we working on the bottles for our 2017 vintage, which will be the first to carry the community logo indicating that the wine has been certified as healthier, ethical and sustainable.
