we practice sustainable agriculture
The mountain vineyards of CARA NORD are 5 km from the Monastery of Poblet, up to 800 m above sea level. They are surrounded by the National Park of the Prades Mountains and Natural Park of Poblet Forest, and lie in an area nationally classified for its geological interest. These vineyards at higher altitudes are surrounded by mountain peaks over 1,000m high, which protect their unique microclimate. Harsh winters and short summers provide the perfect conditions for the creation of grapes that are generously fruity and bold.
At CARA NORD, sustainable agriculture is practised with constant attention to the agricultural ecosystem. Winemaking with minimal intervention prioritizes the conservation and biodiversity of the forests that surround the vines, favouring an integrated and sustainable organic approach. At CARA NORD the vines are encouraged to coexist with other plant species and plant coverage is sought, thereby avoiding erosion at the same time as the ground is naturally fertilized. The aim at CARA NORD is to minimize the ecological footprint and help to protect the surrounding Natural Parks. The vineyards act as a natural firewall and also increase the biodiversity of the area, generating habitats for insects and their natural predators. Overall the viticulture at CARA NORD seeks to use farming methods that are compatible with the environment, where most of the agents for promoting growth are organic, in the belief that this will not only lead to healthier vines but will also result in the creation of finer and more integrated wines.
