Cesca Vicent

Instinctually, she's been practicing organic since 1999, and will become certified in 2011. Striving "to make as natural wine as possible to express the terroir," Francesca practices dry farming whenever possible and employs "sexual confusion techniques" to deter insects without the use of pesticides. Conducting "soil studies to make sure that merlot, syrah, etc. are planted in the right place," Francesca says that with this testing, she was "looking for different flavor profiles." Knowing how each varietal benefits from the different soils, "aids tranquility," she says, because she, working with vintner Emili Esteve, knows what they have. Working with wild yeasts, and not filtering nor fining in the winery, Esteve has been working with Francesca since day one.
