These vineyards were replanted after the phylloxera plague and are still productive today, nearly 100 years later. Vineyards that have been cared for by past generations and now the responsibility is upon us and soon will have to be accepted by future generations. Traditional land work without the use of pesticides, herbicides or any kind of systemic substance. The way it has always been done and is so “trendy” now. Call it sustainable, biodynamic or organic viticulture. Whatever way you like it. The name refers to those elderly vineyards with very low productivity, authentic relics of past times that sprout each spring to show us the way forward.
