Like all Piattelli wines, Natural Sweet is made sustainably at Piattelli Vineyards, which is committed to producing high quality wines that reflect the landscape and climate of Argentina. Piattelli Vineyards strives to preserve the quality of their natural resources.
All of the water used in their vineyards comes from a retaining pond that collects surface melt from snow packs on the Andes Mountains above that flows down from the mountains. Using both drip and surface irrigation, they are able to precisely control the amount of water used.
Piattelli Vineyards practices sustainability during their harvest. The winery in Cafayate, Salta is one of three gravity-flow wineries in Argentina. Built into the side of a mountain, it features a three-tiered gravity flow system for winemaking that minimizes use of electricity to move the grapes through the winemaking process using only gravity. The system is not only more sustainable, but also maximizes flavor by preventing grapes from breaking prematurely, seeds from being crushed, and juice from being oxygenated or heated.
At Piattelli Vineyards inorganic fertilizer is avoided and instead they compost the pumice of their grapes and stems to improve soil fertility. After pressing the grapes, the remaining organic material is allowed to compost. It is then used to fertilize the vines.
Argentina’s climate is essential to our success in creating high quality wines in a sustainable way. The Andes Mountains create a dry climate in the growing regions. This area would be a natural desert, but because of the sophisticated irrigation system they can still supply their vines with as much water as they need to grow the highest quality grapes.
