    You can enjoy a giant sky with imposing games of natural light, silent nights but with many noises of nightlife.
    They will be able to know the agroecological and political movement that we live in our lands since we actively participate in these movements and enjoy some wines so good that they connect you with your spirit and nature


    Podran disfrutar de un cielo gigante con imponente juegos de luces naturales, noches silenciosos pero con muchos ruiditos de la vida nocturna.
    Podran conocer el movimiento agroecologico y politico que vivimos en nuestras tierras ya que participamos activamente en estos movimientos y disfrutar de unos vinos tan buenos que te conectan con tu espiritu y la naturaleza

    Between August and September the activities are mainly in the vineyard, performing the pruning and the other cultural works of the vine,
    Between February and April activities are related to harvesting and natural winemaking.
    Throughout the year the activities relate to maintenance of the garden and the property in general, we also started bio-construction activities with natural clay. The weather is very nice, always very sunny.


    Entre agosto y septiembre las actividades son principalmente en el viñedo, realizando la poda y las demas labores culturales de la vid, ademas del mantenimiento de la huerta, construccion natural con barro y trabajos en la bodega como embotellado y etiquetado.

    El clima es muy lindo, siempre muy soleado.
