we’re glad you asked.
minimal intervention means that our wines are made with no preservatives, coloring, decoloring, added citrus, micro-oxygenation, added sugar, added preservatives, synthetic yeasts, nutrients, acids, bacteria, fining, or oaking. instead, the grape growing is allowed to take its own course.
we use minimal intervention technology such as:
infra-red sensors that can read the color of healthy grape leaves and gain a better diagnosis of the grapes.
the terra system is installed throughout the vineyards to measure environmental factors. this data is then used to predict if and when it is needed to intervene, drastically reducing the number of interventions.
sexual confusion by instead of spraying chemicals that kill parasites, we spread pheromones to confuse them so that they do not mate and do not spoil the grapes. this reduces chemicals, diesel fuel and freshwater. all good for the environment and creates grapes that are, you guessed it, minimally intervened with.
we proudly said no to manipulating the grapes, so that you can say yes to a glass of good clean wine. or two.
