Copper and sulphur sprays are either manual or with a small caterpillar tractor to avoid compacting soils and our best vineyards are horse -ploughed.

Grapes are harvested into 13 kg boxes and all fruit is passed over a sorting table before vinification in open top wooden fermentors. Sulphur is kept to a minumum or zero depending on the wine.

The wines are aged in 228 l Burgundy barrels for12-18 months depending on the wine. We bottle all wines at the Domaine.
