Discovering new, unexplored roads
Bodega Trapiche has made forays into new challenges since the very beginning. Its inquiring spirit has led the winery to find unique, remote locations where to grow grapes. This holds true not only for Mendoza, brimming with areas of excellent winemaking potential, but also for Chapadmalal, a place that realized Trapiche’s pioneer spirit in the first wines of oceanic influence.
Biodynamic practices stand out as the purest forms of ecological agricultures, which are aimed at preserving the natural properties of crops by eliminating the use of chemicals, herbicides and fungicides and calculating the moon cycles for the harvest. Those practices also look to sustain ecosystem balance and biological diversity and to recover bacterial activity in the soil. The winery is surrounded by olive trees and vineyards managed under those practices, which include the use of organic plant and animal fertilizers from a farm located at the back of the winery and owned by Trapiche. We believe that to keep on producing, innovating and educating about our wines, we must respect what nature provides us.
