Practices & Techniques
Nutrients are supplied in part by compost, but also by growing cover crops of legumes and cereals, the former for nitrogen and the latter for organic matter.
We try to minimise cultivation, and to that effect, the cover crop is rolled or slashed and thrown under vine. Sometimes the under vine row is mulched, other times it is cultivated.
Fungal diseases are controlled using Ecocarb and vegetable oil.
Insect pests are food for predators. The native vegetation around the vineyard provides habitats for many of them.
