Green Manure

The rows in the vineyard where we planted the seeds in the green manure have become a lush abundant weave of many different flowers and plants: sweet peas alternate with mustard, fava beans, phacelia, vetch, barley and oats.

Looking out over the vineyard the eye is drawn to the colours of the blooms along the rows of vines, colours which cling to the bright sharp green undergrowth made even more intense by the recent rains.

Now the time has arrived to restore to the soil the organic material grown up over the winter and the start of spring: buried below ground within a few hours of being finely cut and chopped.

This is the fertilisation we adopt in our vineyard, 100% sustainable.
