Flowering and Fruit

We’re happy because it’s flowering time in our vineyard. Strictly speaking, vines don’t flower as such, as there are no visible petals. Instead there is a green structure known as a calyptra (like a hood).
In Checura, this process usually occurs during November and it’s very special because it determines our production which, as we are organic and natural, we foster through disbudding, seeking to distribute the sap and encourage vigour in the plant.
We always allow the vines to co-exist with the much maligned weeds. We’ve observed nature and our vineyard a great deal and, contrary to common belief, we have found that this association enables us to protect the vines and develop production processes that are much less invasive and more authentic and natural.
