I grow-up in south eastern Spain in certified organic farming vineyards. The
vines are on average 25 years old. The wine process starts in early October.
The separation of the grapes harvested ecologically and conventionally is
guaranteed not only by the facilities, but also by strict traceability rules. I rest
several months in American oak barrels before bottling.
WHAT DOES ORGANIC MEAN?
“Organic” farming relates to agricultural production systems that seek to
provide the consumer with fresh, tasty and authentic food while respecting
natural life-cycle systems. Typical organic practices include: strict limits on
chemical pesticides and fertilisers, appropriate livestock farming practices, a
strict ban on the use of Genetically-Modified Organisms, limits on processing
aids and food additives.
