CURIOSITY

THE CO-OPERATIVE WAS BORN OVER THIRTY YEARS AGO. AT A TIME IN WHICH INCREASING NUMBERS OF PEOPLE HAD MOVED TO THE CITIES AND TO FACTORY WORK, THREE YOUNG MEN FROM LOCAL FARMING FAMILIES GOT TOGETHER TO DISCUSS THE FUTURE OF FARMING IN THIS AREA. THEY WERE DEEPLY ATTACHED TO THE WORK AND TO THEIR OWN LAND, BUT THEY WANTED TO FIND NEW WAYS OF USING TRADITIONAL METHODS. TO BEGIN WITH, THEY MERGED THEIR VINEYARDS AND BUILT STALLS FOR FARM ANIMALS SO THEY COULD USE ORGANIC MANURE TO FERTILISE THEIR FIELDS AND VINES. THE OLD WAYS WERE COMBINED WITH A VERY MODERN BELIEF IN ORGANIC FARMING AS THE WAY OF THE FUTURE, AS PART OF THE WIDER PROJECT KNOWN AS ‘CONTRACTION’, INVOLVING REDUCING THE HUMAN IMPACT ON THE NATURAL ENVIRONMENT.ONLY 600 BOTTLES OF THIS WINE WERE PRODUCED.
