VITICULTURE / VINIFICATION

• Vineyards receive more rainfall than most others in the region—helpful in this dry climate

• Soils are worked naturally with composts and herbal infusions to fertilize and manage pests

• All grapes are harvested by hand

• All cuvées are bottled unfiltered


White:

• Grapes are pressed with the stems

• Fermentation and aging of the wine takes place in 500-L barrels

• Wine undergoes malolactic fermentation

• Wine is aged for 1 year before bottling


Reds:

• All grapes de-stemmed

• Before fermentation, the grapes are cold-soaked and undergo pump-overs

• During fermentation, grapes undergo punch-downs

• Maceration lasts 25 to 30 days

• Wines are aged in foudre and barrel for 2 years

• Wines are bottled unfiltered
