Do you produce grapes in a organic or environmental friendly method, or with general methods ?
We don’t produce organic wines but we have been doing reasonable winegrowing since 1996 . this is why we have installed a weather station on the vineyard , enabling us to monitor the weather conditions on a daily basis , avoid damage to the vines and reduce treatment to a minimum .

In Asia , we export in China , Hong Kong , Japan , Cambodgia , Singapore .
