A brief overview of a wine season in interactive images!

January: Pre-pruning work
Beautiful vines that flourish in abundance on plots that are still fertile thanks to the collaboration between Philippe MURATET, the former winegrower and the new winemaker owner, Fergus FITZGERALD.

February / March: Pruning
Once the size is finished, the arrows must be tied, a long job that requires know-how and a mastered technique. A heavy task to complete before the appearance of buds!

April: Trellising time
In spring, the vine awakens and bud burst is already well advanced: the buds open and small leaves appear. The pruning is finished and the winegrowers trellis on iron wire. The vine is tied horizontally so that the shoots are maintained.
May: Protection of the vineyard and suckering. 
To avoid the proliferation of parasitic weeds, a second series of plowings is carried out superficially. The first sprayings intended to protect the vines against diseases and pests begin. From the trunk or the bottom of the stump, the "greedy" are infertile branches that will be removed by desuckering.
June: Accolage, Trimming and Flowering
In trellised vines, the winegrower "joins" the vines, tying the young branches against the iron wires in order to contain the growth of the vine which can quickly become bushy and invasive, which is detrimental to the proper ripening of the grapes. It is also necessary to proceed to the trimming (or topping) of the branches to also see the vine flowering at this time.
July, August: Thinning and pest control.
After flowering, the number and distribution of clusters on the vines can be determined. If there are too many bunches, we then proceed to a thinning, which consists in removing the too many bunches before their maturation because an excessive number of bunches can harm the good maturity of the vine. In August, tillage generally stops but monitoring the vineyard remains essential and its protection may be necessary until September because there is always a risk of disease development.
September: Monitoring the future harvest
At the beginning of September, the winegrower closely monitors the degree of ripening of the grapes, regularly picking bunches so that he can ideally set the date for the next harvest.

September, the long-awaited harvest!

Vinification in oak barrels
Behind a beautiful dress hides all the alchemy of transformation which takes on its full dimension when the winemaker, in addition to putting all his heart into it, works it with his hands.

September – Continuation of pruning in joy and good humor!
The operation continues until March. A wise winemaker knows how to surround himself well!

November / December: Rest of the vine
The vine has lost its flamboyant autumn foliage, and the winegrower prunes the long vine shoots during pre-pruning and then mounds the vines to protect them from the cold and also promote the flow of winter rainwater. 
After the harvest, the vine rests for a period of about 6 months (from November to March). But, if the vine falls asleep, the winegrower takes care of the winter work to maintain it and prepare it for the next vintage.



The cellar is equipped entirely with stainless steel equipment and has a total capacity of 3,000 hectoliters (300,000 litres).
In the cellar, a few oak barrels have been installed and are reserved for the creation of limited editions in the process of being created!
We'll tell you about it soon!
During vinification, each plot is vinified separately to guarantee traceability of the vine and adapt the best vinification technique to the must according to the origin of the terroir of the plot.
