Organic Winegrowing

Organic winegrowing brings together tradition, innovation and science in the interest of our shared environment, promoting fair trade practices (as put forth by the Fair for Life certification) and a good quality of life for everyone involved.

The use of herbicides is not allowed, which means weeding is done mechanically (using tractors, disc harrows and string trimmers) or manually (using hoes).

Pest control is carried out using mineral fungicides.

Our Own Compost

Our compost is made up of organic matter such as pomace (grape pips and skins), cow dung from extensive livestock farming and alpeorujo, a solid waste by-product of olives, which we get from our family’s olive oil production plant. Additionally, we compost all our garden waste as well as the food and vegetable waste from our staff’s break room.


Vermicomposting is done using red Californian worms. Our starting point is unfinished compost, which is moisturized to 80-90% of its capacity to create ideal living conditions for earthworms. The result is very stable soil organic matter of the highest quality, with a pH level of 7 and high in hormone content.

Green Manure

In order to maintain soil fertility levels and promote microbe life in our soils, barley, rye, vetches, sorghum and millet are planted every winter.
Green manure crops are very important to restore air circulation to the soil, a process that occurs as their roots grow and act as natural subsoilers. Additionally, these crops promote a dynamic interaction of mineral nutrients, transforming them into organic ones. The combination of CO2, water, and light is then transformed into sugars and carbonated elements that make up the plant.

Water Treatment

Our effluent treatment plant is currently active, performing a process where industrial waste water becomes neutralized with lime and is pumped into a pool. Once there, this water, destined for irrigation, is treated by means of oxygenation on the basis of its pH balance, after which it is mixed with the rest of the irrigation water supply. This process reduces the consumption of water from our wells and allows us to save energy from well pump usage. All of these processes are regulated by the General Department of Irrigation, a local government body.

A Family Affair.

When the running of a winery remains in the hands of an entire family, it shows: decisions seem to take on a different quality. We are the third generation of family members who feel passionately about details, which proves that the choice of soils, grape varieties and wine varietals does matter to us—because we know it is our family name which is at stake, and we stand by it proudly.
Our winery is not a place of work. It is a place of life.


“We are Argentina’s #1 certified organic winegrower”.
Organic agriculture is a crop production system that preserves soil, ecosystem and human health.


“We believe the sky is the limit in Argentine winegrowing.
Attention to detail is at the heart of every great wine. We share a passion for making approachable, easy-to-drink wines, while keeping a balance with the environment, our main challenge.”
Ruben Ruffo Winemaking Manager.

Our People.

Fully aware of our responsibility, we seek to manage social impact by returning to the community some of the many assets it gives to us. Our challenge is to continue creating opportunities that foster education, production and culture in the communities we work in.

The right wine matters to us.
