VEGAN AND ORGANIC WINE
“Our wines are healthy and natural, in respect of grape. You can feel the scent of the earth, the whisper of the wind, the passion for the vineyard. “
Organic: highest quality with the greatest respect possible for the environment
We have a deep connection with the territory, we are working hard to increase and promote its value through our wines and our Ancient Cellars. In our historic estates The Bicana, The Bassonet, The Gerette, Spiridiona we make wine in accordance with principles of organic farming, respecting the environment and the raw material. We do not use herbicides, but we enrich soil with organic matter, nitrogen and trace elements. We also use vegetable and mineral fertilizers, in order to avoid groundwater and soil pollution.
The majority of people are unaware that wine although made from grapes, may have been made using animal derived products. During the fining process, wine is infact filtered through substances called “fining agents” as isinglass, gelatin, casein, albumin. These elements make wine clear and stable, but depleted of its perfumes and authentic flavors. Furthermore animal allergens can cause allergic reactions or intolerances.
Thankfully, there are several animal-friendly fining agents, as carbon, clay, limestone, bentonite, etc. We have chosen to use them to provide a better product, free from animal derivates! Vegan wines are pure, high quality. They are preferable for their high digestibility and their natural taste. These wines keep from one to two years.
