“Regenerative agriculture is another perspective within the scope of “the organics,” like biodynamic or natural farming, yet it provides scientific solutions to a very specific problem, our collapsing food production systems,” says Arturo.
Born in Spain, Arturo Romera moved around Europe before settling in Copenhagen. First as a fine dining chef and then as a sourdough baker, he developed an interest in food systems and decided to study Organic Farming. After his graduation, he returned to Spain and started his wine-growing project, Agrícola Molineta, among the mountains west of Madrid, in Sierra de Gredos. Arturo recovers old plots of Grenache up in the mountains through no-tillage, organics, and traditional dry farming techniques. Molineta also specializes in sharing knowledge and teaching regenerative farming, pruning, and soil carbon enhancement to peers in Gredos, an area with a blooming movement of natural winemakers.
His vision is clear: agriculture is a craft but a political tool as well. For him, it’s how small communities can reclaim their independence and develop viable projects in rural areas suffering from climate change and economic stagnation.
In his workshop on regenerative farming, Arturo will explain his principles and approaches. He will explain how land can be regenerated while at the same time, regenerating local economies. You will get to explore Sierra de Gredos while tasting three of his wines, each from a different plot.
Are you curious about how farming can impact wine? Are you considering starting your own regenerative farm? Are you already farming and want to hear Arturo’s unique story or are you simply curious? Then this workshop is for you.
