OUR PHILOSOPHY AND BIODYNAMIC AGRICULTURE: DISCOVER THE SECRET OF FINCA TORREMILANOS
Finca Torremilanos, founded in 1903, is a 100% biodynamic farm with 200 hectares of vineyard owned. We pursue the creation of biosynergies, a wine-growing philosophy in which animals, plants, land and the man works together.
Our goal is to maintain a sustainable and self-sufficient farm with biodiversity of flora and fauna. We want to have a living, structured and more fertile soil. The care of our vineyards is the most important. The character of our wines is unique, it is determined by the typicity of our microclimate and our soils on the farm.
THE FOUR KEYS OF OUR BIODYNAMIC AGRICULTURE
In order to have a well-structured soil, we work with plant covers sown and spontaneous.
Root underground allowing the entry of air and, therefore, allow us to have more more alive soils (fungi, bacteria, insects and worms). These covers provide organic matter that soil life can transform into mineral salts to feed the plants.
The contribution of a compost of animal manure provides our soils with an extra dose of organic matter that feeds the life of the soil and turns into salts for plants.
This compost comes mainly from sheep that graze freely on land that borders the farm and the river Duero.
In Finca Torremilanos we use medicinal plants by means of infusions and macerations in order to regulate the presence of fungi and stimulate the defenses of the strains.
We apply vegetable extracts with chamomile, horsetail, nettle, valerian, yarrow and dandelion
Biodynamic preparations are mixtures of mineral, vegetable and animal substances that, exposed to natural forces for a while, allow a return to their habitat to be altered.
They serve to give life and activate different elements that are in our floors and that are also essential for the proper development of the plant
– Prepared 501: preparation of silica in horns, stimulates the activity of the leaves of the plant.
– Prepared 503: chamomile flowers in cow’s small intestine, stabilizes nitrogen.
– Prepared 505: Old oak bark in pet skull, activates calcium processes and promotes formative forces to prevent disease. plant.
– Prepared 506: dandelion in cow mesentery, concentrates the silicic acid.
– Prepared 507: pressed fresh valerian flowers, prevents frost and is added to the compost.
– Prepared 508: boiled horsetail stalks, helps prevent the formation of fungi
EVERYTHING THIS ALLOWS US TO OFFER ONE ECOLOGICAL PRODUCTS, OF THE HIGHEST QUALITY strong> AND RESPECTFUL WITH THE ENVIRONMENT FROM THE FIRST MOMENT
Wines and cosmetic products made from a selection of grapes from our vineyards located in Finca Torremilanos, in Aranda de Duero, without the addition of chemical products. By following the criteria of biodynamic agriculture, we have been certified with all Demeter certificates of biodynamic agriculture in Ribera del Duero
