Our Hera, always around

Owned by Maria’s paternal side of the family for over 20 years this land is our reason of being. It made our start possible and springs opportunities for the future. Separated in 3 smaller autonomous parcels, it gives us an exciting mosaic of different soils and altitudes to work with. We keep both our yields (≈3000 plants/ha) and planting density (5000-9000 kg of fresh grapes/ha) low. The climate is moderate Mediterranean, benefited by the sea breeze and the natural shelter from the surrounding mountains. Significant rainfall can be noted during the year.

Our winery is only up to 25 min away even from the most remote parcel of ours. Not a trivial fact, considering that we manage to avoid energy-intensive transportation for our freshly hand-harvested grapes. Sorting the best fruits is imperative, that is why we do it twice: at harvest and upon reception at a vibrating conveyor belt table at our winery.
