Philosophy of MINIMAL INTERVENTION

In the vineyard and in the winery we implement a philosophy of minimal intervention. We rely on the most advanced and in turn simplest technology because we believe that in winemaking the less we intervene, the resulting wines turn out more authentic, natural, pleasant and expressive. Convinced that nature should follow its course and wine manipulation should be kept to the minimum in order to achieve authenticity.

We call it the ‘Tandem paradox’ because we produce wines considered modern using up to date technology which replicates how wines used to be made centuries ago:

• The wines are moved by gravity in the winery.
• We do not use a mechanical system for pumping over during fermentation.
• We keep the red wines in underground concrete vats for a minimum of two years in order to clarify them naturally.
• We do not use cold stabilisation.
• Minimal filtration

We want to reflect in Tandem wines the mountain setting and cool climate of our location.
