OUR TERROIRS

Knowing the history of our terroirs is part of the way that we pay our respects to them as their devout servants.

The soils where we grow our vines are the result of millions of years of plate tectonics, climate changes, the growth and melting of glaciers, submersion by seas, lakes or huge rivers.
All those events contributed to the formation of successive layers, our vineyards striking their roots only in the last top meters.
Experienced winegrowers can recognise the best terroirs, and know how much they owe our soils for what they receive through the fruit of the vine: WINE.
Good winegrowing areas exist as such only when revealed by the hard, patient and attentive work of vintners.
Letting a terroir reveal itself means, among other things, that one does not hammer it with weedkillers, pesticides or chemical fertilisers.
A vintner knows he just has to remain humble.
