"By doing the good things right, you make the world more beautiful! It's that simple!"
With this belief, Derrick Neleman started his study to become a biodynamic farmer. After his training, he ended up on the vineyards in Spain. When he realized how culturally historically important wine is as a binder in a civilization, everything fell into place. Derrick wanted to make the most beautiful wines in optimal cooperation with nature to enable people to experience how beautiful & special life is.
They believe if you take good care of the people who make the wine, then you make better wine & we completely agree! This reflects their personal belief of nurturing the human spirit, in all its variety & glory. With better wine they create more special moments for the people who drink the wines.
Neleman organic wine is made without the use of pesticides & additives. A healthy & balanced soil yields a richer biodiversity that provides a richer breeding ground for tastier grapes. Taking good care of nature not only serves us with good wine today, but more importantly, with good wine for eternity!
Neleman's are careful with their unique grapes, vineyards & nature around them. Planting a tree for every 175 bottles that they produce & always choosing the most sustainable option in their business operations. They choose young artists, designers & architects to make the design of their labels & packaging. Serving nature & people the right attention.
The vineyards are situated in a hilly district set in a mountainous region, cut up by ravines more than 100m deep. Both varieties are produced in a rarely fresh area in the Valencia region, 700m above sea level. Harvesting is done at night, avoiding oxidation & the high temperatures of the day.
Once in the winery, the must is cooled to 10°C (sweet maceration). After 3 days, fermentation takes place, controlling the temperature at around 21°C.
