The work in the vineyard, with the seasons.

Vine pruning

Winter, the season of transition.
The different plots need maintenance like pruning.We prune from December to prepare the future branches.Two kinds of pruning depending on whether it is a white or red vine.

White chardonnay pruning

For the Chardonnay (white) we prune in "Guyot Simple", and we remove all the double buds.

Red pinot noir pruning

For the the vine of red "Pinot Noirs" we cut "Cordon de Royat".
The objective is to limit the yields, increase sunlight, ventilate the plants and improve maturity.

Selection of the future bunches

We select by disbudding the branches carrying the future bunches, to obtain the ideal number of grapes on each plant.

Tying the rods

For the white vines, we attach branches left during pruning to the middle trellis.

Start of plowing work

Plowing begins.
The objective is to do without chemicals and to aerate the soil, so that the roots sink deep into the soil and the tastes of the land develop.

Desuckering and tying up

May - June: the vines are in flower, disbudding and tying up have started, plowing continues.

Trimming, plowing, and processing

July - August: trimming, plowing and treatment follow one another, while waiting for the ripening of the grapes.

Bunch thinning

In high-yielding vines, bunch thinning is performed to reduce yields and allow the grapes to ripen better.

Leaves thinning

Leaf thinning in the fruit area also helps the grapes get maximum sunlight.


As soon as the grapes reach maximum maturity, in September or October depending on the year, the harvest begins.
In 2020, we started earlier on August 18.
We have a modern vat room, where vinification takes place
