More about today’s winery:
The core of our company’s philosophy is commitment to the landscape; we are only guardians of Nature and must act to preserve and respect the land with decision making in accordance with the season. We cultivate or cover crop according to the vigour of the vines, we manage with a focus on soil heath, we use sulphur and copper in response to the weather and we adapt canopy heights according to the natural shoot growth. To achieve this, we improved old vineyards and established new ones with traditional vine densities of 8,000 to 11,000 vines per hectare. We source the cuttings for new vineyards exclusively from our old vines (over 100 years old). Our yields are less than 1 kg/vine and we have achieved a vine balance that highlights the characteristics of the land. Organic fertilisers, green manure, low amounts of copper and the use of herbal teas based on horsetail and nettle, all contribute to make our vines the core of our production process.
