Alchemic winemaker to inspire (others as well as myself!) through spontaneous agricultural practices and pure transformation of the grapes in the cellar

Artistic wine-making to me is the opportunity to openly express myself in such world, free of any chemical/physical interaction that might alter the delicate harmony sought and established with the grapes in the field, and with the wine in the cellar.
In the balanced equilibrium between vintner and vines first, and between winemaker and grapes later, lies the force to produce a wine independent of the fluctuating marketing trends, and capable of becoming the means for producers and grapes to freely and artistically express themselves.
