there can not exist natural wine without clean, fertile soil. it is therefore of utter importance to establish a plantation in a chemically unaltered soil and maintain its balance over the course of the vine’s natural life.
relatively recent climate changes have determined us to establish the plantation on the “ darjov valley “ in the immediate vicinity of the ancient dacian site “oboga forest” on a fertile soil rich in gravel and silt and surrounded by a natural barrier comprising of an oak forest.
the exceptional romanian varieties thriving in this geographical area: feteasca neagra, negru de dragasani and novac require burying throughout the cold season. all work, including the removal of weeds is done manually, without the use of herbicides. a macerated mix of vine, oak and walnut leaves and stems is used as fertiliser and plant based emulsions are exclusively used in phytosanitary treatments.
