The vineyards and winery of Dehesa de Luna are already ecological

La Roda (Albacete), February 2,019. Dehesa de Luna Finca Reserva de Biodiversidad has achieved that all the vineyards that form Dehesa de Luna and the winery obtain certification for the production of organic wines. The natural environment where the vineyards are grown and where the winery is located required this recognition of the effort to practice viticulture that respects the environment where it develops.

With this official certification, Dehesa de Luna Finca Reserva de Biodiversidad can now officially produce organic wines in its facilities from its own grapes. The first ones with the eco-label will be the ones that will be in the market with the 2018 vintage.

Dehesa de Luna Finca de Biodiversidad has 3,000 hectares of land, of which almost 1,000 are dedicated to agriculture. The remaining 2,000 hectares are formed by masses of Mediterranean forests and reforested plots with native species.

Before the vineyard, Dehesa de Luna obtained this certification for the rest of the crops (cereals, olive groves, almond and pistachio), in this way all the farm's agriculture is organic.

For José Luis Asenjo, technical director of the winery, this step was necessary “to be consistent with our farm philosophy, where sustainability and respect for the environment are fundamental pieces”.

Currently, Dehesa de Luna has 64 hectares of vineyards divided into 4 plots: El Viñazo, La Mata de la Culebra, La Cañada del Navajo and La Noria de Luna. These last two have "possibly one of the most technologically advanced vineyards" as confirmed, José Ramón Lisarrague, an expert viticulture consultant, who has created a unique vineyard, with viticulture designed to obtain the best of each variety and mitigate the effects of change climate.

With a continental climate and Mediterranean influence and 850 meters above sea level, La Cañada del Navajo and La Noria de Luna have different combinations of the seven different vineyard driving systems - sprawl, semisprawl, vertical sprawl, vertical axis, trellis, vessel and pergola. The eight varieties that compose it are Tempranillo, Graciano, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Viura, Viognier, Chardonnay and Garnacha Blanca - and have been designed based on the type of soil, uneven terrain, variety and oenological objectives.
