I remember each and every vintage in the vineyards right from when we started to work the land organically. The problems had been hidden behind the conventional farming methods and only started to manifest themselves once we made the change and then they all filed out one after the other.
Year after year, the weak spots stood out in our vineyard to remind us that we were not doing a good job. I get goose bumps when I think about all the grapes I lost along the way, but when I walk through the vineyard and see, smell, touch and taste and listen to the balance which is in the process of being restored, then I forget all the headaches.
This is because balance is learnt by using our six senses.
And while this natural restoration process continues, this search for organic laws, we will continue to make new friends, find new ideas, learn new things good and bad, discover new sounds, paths, passions, smells…and we will become enriched by sensations which we will try to transmit through our wines: Venus and Dido.
