Cultural practices in vineyards: respect for biodiversity

We carry out a minimum tillage of our plots throughout the year. Every 2 years we add natural and well composted organic fertilizers to the soil. At the beginning of the year we carry out a restrictive winter pruning in the Royat cordon style, to acheive the balance of the plant and programming a low yield. In spring, after sprouting, we carry out numerous manual interventions: green pruning, raising the canopy, trimming, clearing … Pruning, together with the respect for the auxiliary fauna and flora, intervening manually in the vineyard, will allow us to have healthy and strong plants that produce balanced fruits with a high concentration of aromatic compounds and polyphenols, as well as a qualiity ripening.

Production process: respect for the raw material

The harvest is done by hand in boxes of 15-20 kg. In the winery the bunches are selected manually. After destemming (without crushing), the whole grapes are taken into our stainless steel tanks, where we carry out a cold pre-fermentation maceration. During the fermentation we pounch 2 times a day to favor extraction and homogenization. After a period of post-fermentation maceration, we proceed with a gentle pressing. Next, clarification by gravity at room temperature. Finally, the wine is transferred to our French oak barrels (62% new barrels), where it will rest for 12 months.
