Trapiche owns 1,255 hectares of vineyards and works collaboratively with more than 300 growers from different areas of the province of Mendoza, offering them valuable advice throughout the grapevine growing season, in a continuous effort to improve wine quality.
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.
