About This Wine...
” …with its cherry fruit and fresh acidity makes for a versatile choice with meat or fish. especially lightly chilled” Martin Moran, The Sunday Times (Ire) 27th May 2018
In 1998, Emiliana’s organic project became a reality, converting their vineyards to herbicide-free environments – see vineyard pest control in action above! In 2006 their vineyards were certified biodynamic, a system which follows and allows nature’s own processes at its own rhythm, without the intervention of external elements. The varietals are young, clearly identified with their original variety and loyal to the characteristics of the grape. From the moment of production they are ready to be consumed.
Eco is a collection of quality wines for everyday enjoyment. Integrity, sustainability and an earth-friendly focus are the inspiration behind this creation. Healthy grapes and beautiful vineyards, teeming with life deliver these engaging wines from the valleys of Chile. Instead of stark, sterile rows of vines, the vineyards are buzzing with birds, bees, insects and native wildlife providing a natural, effective defence against common vine-destroying insects. Chemicals are replaced by natural products and compost is produced from grape skins and stems, vegetal residue and manure. Harmony with nature and a commitment to the integrity of the environment are reflected in Eco Balance.
