in the vineyard : Vineyards are fifteen years old and planted on the northern slopes of the farm. The vines are trained onto a five-wire trellis system to maximise exposure to the sunlight and sea breeze. The use of minimal handling and insecticides shows our approach towards enviro-friendly farming methods.

Deep fertile Oakleaf and Clovelly soil. The 20 to 30 cm of decomposed granite becomes a good mixture of sand to sand-lime-clay soil medium. It is then followed by 50 to 60 cm of wet zone, as a result of limited amounts of clay, with apparent granite origin.

in the cellar : The berries ripened in different stages during the time of harvest. The cultivars fermented separately in different stainless steel tanks. After gentle-pressing malolactic was encouraged in the finest 225 lt French oak barrels where it matured for 20 months.
