In wine, not all mechanisms and dynamics related to the powerful expression of an ecosystem are perfectly understood. However, we know two things for sure.
First, in striving for the embodiment of the unmistakable “stamp” of a growing area, nothing matters more than protecting the unique properties of the ecosystem. Second, we are firm believers in the storied correlation between regenerative farming and low-intervention winemaking practices and the emergence of transcendent wines.
There is a simplicity to the rule of non-action in winemaking, relegating the role of the winemaker to the transparent facilitator of natural processes that are almost always self-regulated.
As the wines carve their own path with the twists and turns of the more unpredictable wild fermentations, confidence is key in staying the course of the natural outcome, and it is paramount not to rush to the conclusion that corrective interventions are necessary at the slightest opportunity.
