|I believe that every human being
is capable of sketching their own path
in life, joyfully performing artistic deeds independent of
predetermined procedures, making each day truly unique. In the balanced
harmony established between flora and fauna, vines and vintner, and
grapes and winemaker, I nourish the inner strength to produce a wine
independent of the fluctuating fashion trends, and most importantly
capable of offering itself as a means to materialize the personality of
both producer and grapes. As a vintner/winemaker I carve the personal
appeal of each wine whereby grape varietals, viticultural region, and
production techniques contribute but do not determine the character of
the final product. Through the simplicity of alchemic winemaking, I
invite the consumer to an introspection aimed at stimulating all human
physical senses in a simple yet powerful ensemble with the impalpable
sphere of thoughts, emotions, memories and feelings. In such wines I
seek to resurface the scent of memories and the taste of emotions that
contributed to the evolution of the fruit on the plant, and the
harmonious interaction with the winemaker in the cellar.
WinesHealthy local grapes partnered with a long fermentation process to foster harmony and strip the must of the fruit and vegetable traits intrinsic to the grape varietal and territory (no varietal or territory is better than any other because there are no preferences in Nature). The resulting wine is the materialization of the ‘memory’ of the vines for the given vintage (independent of grape type, territory and technique), molded exclusively by the consciousness of the winemaker, while remaining free of physical and chemical intervention.
