FINCA LA CARRODILLA
Jean Marie Pelt, President of the European Institute of Ecology, says: “The land is to be tamed, not dominated.” The nurturing, care, and love with which, not only the grapevine but all surrounding living matter is treated, will reflect in its fruit. A joyfull environment is equal to the vine’s fertility.
All of the above is well-known by Finca La Carrodilla, a winery in Valle de Guadalupe, which introduces itself as an orchard with four cows, six sheep, two dozen hens, and 40 thousand grapevines. Here, the Pérez Castro family honors the patron Virgin of the grapevines, who has certainly had a heavenly hand in this blossoming setting.
La Carrodilla relies on sustainable agriculture, whereupon environmental harmony and respect dictate the winemaking process.
The vineyard, first in the area to obtain an Organic Certification, operates through biodynamism practices that ultimately improve its quality by promoting the reclaim of ancestral awareness, regarding the relationship between the farmer and his environment.
