      ABOUT THIS PRODUCER

      Farming/vinification practices: In 2017, Ventozela obtained the certification of Integrated Production for their vineyards and wines. Integrated production refers to a sustainable farming system that produces high quality food and other products by using natural resources and regulating mechanisms to replace polluting inputs. Emphasis is placed on a systems approach involving the entire vineyard as the basic unit, on the central role of agro-ecosystems, on balanced nutrient cycles, and on the welfare of all species in animal husbandry. The preservation and improvement of soil fertility and of a diversified environment are essential components. Biological, technical and chemical methods are tuned to take into account the protection of the environment, profitability and social requirements.

      No chemicals are used by Ventozela. Everything is hand-harvested, by a team of about 30 people, usually starting around September 20th. The wines are vegan – fined with bentonite.
