VINEYARD

All of the grapes are grown on the Domaine, this in an area where a great deal of wine is made from bought in grapes. This control of the vineyards and the resultant quality of the grapes they produce is very important. Soil types vary from clay/gravel mixes through to basalt and volcanic ash based soils and grape varieties are matched to most suitable soil types.

WINEMAKING

 Grapes are picked at night to make sure they are cool when they arrive at the winery, this enhances the fruit character of the final wine. Soils are often stony and light in colour, these absorb the heat of the sun and optimising ripening from below the vine as well as directly from the sun itself. Average age of vines is 25 years and the whole Domaine is part of a scheme called Qualenvi which means the Domaine is committed to not using pesticides or artificial fertilizers in the vineyards and is committed long-term to sustainable agriculture. Tremendous quality for an entry level wine made with care and compassion
