The idea to treat nature in an environmentally friendly way had already begun in 1968 through our association with ANOG, the association of organic wine-growing. Our entry to the federal association of organic wine-growing “ECOVIN” (www.ecovin.org) followed in 1992. Consequently, we totally reject the use of artificial fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides.
The development of healthy desease-resistant vines as well as the promotion of diverse plant- and animal life within the vineyard-ecosystem enjoy a high priority. This is supplemented by planting flowering seed-mixtures to create a positive environment for symbiotic insect life as well as helping to produce a valuable source of humus. Pruning techniques provide for the optimum oxygenation of the vines.
