Organic purity is more than just a way of farming and winemaking – it is also a philosophy.
The cornerstone of organic farming is the soil. A vineyard that has been sprayed with pesticides looks like the surface of Mars. There is not a weed (nor bug) to be seen, and the dirt is lifeless – hard as a rock. Organic vineyards, in contrast, are a riot of life—cover crops fill lushly in between the rows of vines, which help distract any nasty pests and renew the biologically active soil. Bees buzz, birds chirp and ladybugs fly overhead. This is nature at her finest: renewing herself in cooperation with the guiding hand of the winemaker, not with a toxic chemical one-two punch.
Earth-friendly means wines that are free of pesticides, herbicides, chemical fertilizers and other synthetic chemicals. Essential preservatives (Sulfur Dioxide or Sulfites) are kept to a minimum. Grapes are often picked by hand and the wines made gently, with minimal handling and filtration. In the cellar, modern and traditional techniques are combined, producing the best possible wines.
Enotec Imports is proud to work with Italian wineries that are dedicated to earth-friendly farming and winemaking philosophies, where respect for nature and long term visions of the future are always first and foremost.
