Vines, just like life, inspire respect. They are unforgiving witnesses to human mistakes. The era of destructive chemicals and ravaging fire is in the past. Now is the time to foster life and construct natural defences against disease. Biosourced molecules balance out the difference forces and are taking over from synthetic molecules which make a clean sweep, indifferent to the situation and the passage of time. Nowadays, winegrowers are like good gardeners who nourish the vines, ensure that soils are balanced and maintain microbial life. Each growing plot and variety is seen as unique. Just like our children who we bring up and bolster to ensure that they are able to deal with the vagaries of life.
