Vine-growing: The planting density is about 4500 plant per hectare, we work our soils mechanically and practice reasoned agriculture on the property since 1990. We do a short pruning in order to reduce our yields and obtain the best quality for our berries.
Winemaking:The harvest is conducted at optimal maturity then we use a sorting table in the cellar and carry out the vinification under controlled temperature according to the progress of the fermentation. We realize a long maceration of 8 weeks to produce colored wines oriented on the aromas. The wine is then aged in vats for a period of 18 months before bottling.
