Who We Are

Like Sir John Dee in his space-time, we have a different, more complete view of reality. There are worlds that go beyond apparent reality, superior worlds that can be reached and seen with the intellect and with the spirit. It is the spirit that elevates us from material reality to bring us into connection with realities that are beyond the visible world. Well, we have had access to these superior worlds.

What We Do

Sir John Dee has done extraordinary works by laying fundamental foundations for understanding the physical world and beyond, he has created tools with which he has come into communication with the higher worlds. We applied Dee's esoteric knowledge to winemaking, the wine being the result of an alchemical process, to obtain not only material, but unity of spirit and matter. And we are convinced that we were guided by angels.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is mainly the esoteric one, of course. Ours is not just a product, we don't have a so- called corporate philosophy, we are far beyond these things. We consider wine as the result of an alchemic process, where the winemaker is a wise alchemist who completes a work that had remained unfinished by Nature. The winemaking process for us is clever alchemy

The Sigillum Dei Aemeth

Is there a language of angels? It was the 16th century and at the court of Queen Elizabeth I, in England, lived the astronomer and astrologer John Dee. He was very close to the sovereign and could enjoy his protection. Around 1580 he moved away from rationalism to begin to investigate the world of spiritism and the occult. It was during this time that he became close to Edward Kelley, occultist and alchemist. From the moment Dee and Kelley began to collaborate, they carried out many research and studies on the magical and esoteric world. More than anything else, Dee and Kelley are still known today for transcribing the language of angels, which was defined by Dee and Kelley as "Enochian". Enoch is a biblical patriarch to whom is attributed an apocryphal text called "the book of Enoch", considered "canonical" in the first centuries of Christianity.

Simbology

The "Hieroglyphic Monad"

Monad, which means unique, represents the simple substance, indivisible, inestimated and of a spiritual nature that constitutes the ultimate element of things.

The "Sigillum Emeth" (Æmeth)

also known as Sigillum Dei Emeth is a revised and corrected version of Sigillum Dei, created by the alchemist John Dee, who added the name "Æmeth" or "Truth", one of the 72 names of God in the cabalistic tradition.

The "24 Theorems"

Dee thus tries to express in a symbol the homogeneity of the Universe and the Creator, each individual element being described as a component related to the Monad, represented as a Mercurial emblem combined with the point and the Binary Ascending.
