Domaine Kikones organically cultivated vineyards are located in Maronia, Thrace and cover a surface of 10ha in total. Vassilis Tassou, Domaine Kikones Vineyard Manager, is in charge of the organic cultivation and ensures the high quality of the grapes produced with the least technological intervention possible.
One of the techniques Vassilis uses to fertilize the vines naturally with nitrogen is the combined cultivation of the Vine and Vicia. Vicia is a plant that is sewed in between the lines of the Vines because it captures the nitrogen that exists in the atmosphere and stores it in it’s roots. When Vicia has grown enough it is plowed into the soil and naturally enriches it with nitrogen while an harmonious environment for the useful insects is created.
The Vines can reach this natural fertilization through their routes, as enough nitrogen quantities have to be contained in the must to achieve a perfect alcoholic fermentation.
