Wine is the expression of the terroir (land) which itself characterises the uniqueness and quality of the grape juice.
The roots of the vines seek out water and nutrients deep in the soil. The vine absorbs all the elements in the soil transmitting them to the fruit.
It seems evident therefore that we should respect the soil and indeed maintain and enrich it.
That is why, since a few years, we have been planting twenty or so different types of plant in order to benefit from their root systems and the nutrients they bring, and to reinforce the biodiversity in the soil.
Equally, planting hedges allows climatic excesses to be attenuated by regulating temperature differences.
Our vineyard benefits from a Mediterranean climate of abundant sunshine and little rain which favours the slow cycles of the vine and insure the quality and regularity of the crop year on year. Another characteristic of our climate are the winds.
The “Tramontane” bows across the vineyard nearly 200 days a year keeping the vine healthy during the growing cycle by limiting disease and aiding photosynthesis and, in summer, wind off the sea carries humidity limiting the hydrous stress of the vines.
