So that good grapes can emerge, a healthy soil is an important prerequisite. Since the soil types in the Maremma differ within short distances, the type of cultivation must adapt. In general, the Valle brothers work as little as possible on the vineyards with heavy machinery to keep the soil permeable, elastic and non-dense. becomes.
The grape picking is doin by hand which guarantees that only the best fruits of the vines get into our wines.
Using the best traditional methods and modern scientific knowledge, Umberto and Bernardo Valle believe that it is important to work with nature and to find a healthy, reciprocal balance between agriculture and nature.
Visitors to the two brothers are asking again and again, what is the difference between organic wine and conventional wine? To summarize, it is mainly the treatment of soil and wine in the vineyard that is different and less of how the wine is treated in the cellar.
So that the soil remains healthy and naturally fertile, the vines are not only healthy, but also produced in the best quality for a first-class wine. In addition, the microfauna and flora in the soil and in the soil are promoted. In the vineyard, no chemicals are used so that no chemicals enter the grapes. In the winery do not use any of the additives that are contained in conventional wines. Also, the amount of sulfites used are far below the legally permitted dose. The end result is wines that reflect their origins - not the result of chemical manipulation!
