The family project came about as a way of restoring the traditional farming system. A system where Man lives from Nature and with Nature, in subsistence farming, poor in resources but perfectly integrated into the landscape and the balance of the ecosystem.

The viticulture is free of chemicals and is part of a project to restore the traditional farming system. They decided not to pull up a single century-old grapevine, but rather to restore the vineyard maintaining the many existing varieties. The vineyard is consolidated with olive groves and fruit trees and with all kinds of native herbs and flowers - the "Mediterranean" theater. In the fight against diseases, the great difference that exists between organic farming and the conventional method is that, in organic farming the fungicides do not penetrate in the tissues of the plant. Biodynamic, is an agricultural philosophy that uses all kinds of organic and natural stimulation to strengthen plants and vivify the soil - making it healthy and airy. Biodynamics intensifies the natural expression of plants.
