Amorici employs chickens and ducks for natural insect and weed control. Thanks to these web-footed friends, the soil is naturally fertilized without chemicals. They help create a nutrient balance in the vineyard, which helps the vines fight disease.
All grapes are grown at the vineyard or sourced as locally as possible, minimizing carbon footprint. Amorici’s wines are minimally processed and always handcrafted. Amorici ferments on the skin and makes its wines from the whole grape, rather than just juice, eliminating the need for added nutrients and clarifying agents.
Mother Nature produces a perfect fruit, and within it, is everything you need to make incredible wine. She simply asks that we follow a few simple rules: process minimally, filter only as needed, use all-natural ingredients, work in harmony with nature, and blend to adjust wines, rather than using additives. Working within these guidelines, Amorici employs “full moon racking,” and clarifying techniques. On the full moon, sediments are naturally pulled out of the wine and settle at the bottom of the barrel. The wines are then siphoned from the barrel, leaving the sediment behind. Amorici celebrates its naturally, handcrafted old-world ways.
From its grapes, to the vineyard’s natural weed and insect control. Amorici Vineyard is committed to sustainability in every possible way.
