We only use natural products like copper and sulphur, and we monitor pest populations so that we use pesticides exclusively when necessary. When we do so it is always with products that are certified for organic farming. We do not use weed-killer. During harvest we select grapes in the vineyard, waiting for optimum ripeness and picking up to 3 separate times in the same vineyard, so harvest can take up to a month.
