Earth-Friendly Wines

Organic Purity - 100% Italian

 "We did not inherit the Earth from our forefathers, we are borrowing it from our descendants." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Organic is more  than simply a way of farming and winemaking. It is also a philosophy.

The cornerstone of organic farming is the soil. A vineyard that has been sprayed with pesticides looks like the surface of Mars. There is not a weed (nor bug) to be seen, and the dirt is lifeless - hard as a rock. Organic vineyards, in contrast, are a riot of life—cover crops fill lushly in between the rows of vines, which help distract any nasty pests and renew the biologically active soil. Bees buzz, birds chirp and ladybugs fly over head. This is nature at her finest: renewing herself in cooperation with the guiding hand of the winemaker, not with a toxic chemical one-two punch.

Earth-friendly = Wines that are free of pesticides, herbicides, chemical fertilizers and other synthetic chemicals. Essential preservatives (Sulfur Dioxide or Sulfites) are kept to a minimum. Grapes are often picked by hand and the wines made gently, with minimal handling and filtration. In the cellar, modern and traditional techniques are combined, producing the best possible wines.

Enotec Imports is proud to list the Italian wineries below that are dedicated to Earth-friendly farming and winemaking philosophies. All wines are carefully handcrafted in small family wineries where respect for Nature and long term visions of the future are always first and foremost.
