We believe that in order to make great wines we must have happy plants, balanced with their environment, and that is why the vineyard is where we focus most of our efforts.
From the pruning to the harvest, all tasks are done manually and with a profound respect for our land.
FINCA DON PERICO
This vineyard is where we live, we were raised and where we work. It was named after our uncle Perico. We have 50 hectares where we produce Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Semillon and Chardonnay.
We purchased this vineyard in 1995. It was virgin land with rocks of up to 7 feet wide. It is located in the piedmont at an altitude of 1100 m.a.s.l. (3609 feet). It is the last vineyard before the mountains. In these 15 hectares we produce Malbec, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay through biodynamic agriculture.
This type of farming considers plantations as complex beings. It underlines the importance of the balance in its comprehensive development and the interconnection between soil, plants and animals as a self-nourishing system without external interventions, if possible.
As in other forms of organic farming, artificial fertilizers and pesticides and toxic herbicides are strictly avoided. Biodynamic agriculture differs from other types of organic agriculture in the use of vegetable and mineral concoctions as compost additives, as well as the use of a labor calendar based in the movements of the stars.
