Our philosophy Culture of vinification

Step by step, our work in our plots.
We cultivate each of our plots according to its terroir, adapting our cultivation methods to its needs.
Our vines require a continuous presence throughout the year:

Spring Ploughing and amendments

In the vineyards, ploughing allows the soil to be rebalanced, loosened and aerated. It is done partially or totally depending on the plot. The ploughing is used to add organic amendments, only if necessary.

Spring Cover crop

We sow grass between the rows of vines to develop the biological life of the soil and allow good water drainage.

Spring Plantation

Hedges to limit erosion and develop natural fauna as well as rose bushes to prevent white disease.

Spring Inter-vine ploughing back

In the spring, we remove the grass at the foot of the vines, which prevents the heat from rising during the night and retains humidity, leading to frost.

Spring/Winter Pruning

The vine is a liana in constant growth, so it must be pruned throughout the year at different stages of its development to obtain beautiful grapes.

We carry out short pruning to favour the extraction of the terroir in gobelet, cordon, cordon de Royat and arcure.

Spring/Summer Suckering and disbudding

For a good development of the grapes, we proceed to manual suckering and disbudding to keep only the branches and then the most productive and qualitative bunches .

Spring/Winter Shearing and thinning

During the stage, we perform shearing and clearing by removing the leaves growing over the grapes to perfect their ripeness and aerate the bunches.

Conversion to organic winegrowing Going organic

We have always been concerned about the environment, because we owe our activity to it and we want to preserve it, which is why we have always cultivated our vines using sustainable methods.

Our estate has been awarded the HVE3 certification (High Environmental Value) since 2019 our approaches are therefore particularly respectful of the environment, especially with the reduction of the use of phytosanitary products.

We always try to encourage biodiversity by planting hedges, fruit trees, installing beehives, etc. Our work in the vineyards is always carried out with a view to managing fertilisation and soil irrigation.
