The Biodynamic Method

Minimizing human intervention is a choice of biodynamic agriculture that we have fully embraced. At Tenuta Mara the vines are cultivated, based on the Lunar and Planetary Calendar and instead of treating the soil with fertilizer, we prepare the earth with a mixture of plant and animal origin.

The rest is given to the thousands of micro-organisms living in the soil that keep it active. Our respect for nature also accompanies us into the process of transforming grapes into Sangiovese wine.

We do not seek short cuts: Biodynamic agriculture does not ever contemplate chemical products or corrective wines, they do not enter nor will they ever enter into Tenuta Mara. Let the earth and the stars spell out the rhythm. We, after careful wine-tasting, bottle only the best wine.
