Gravely-clayey, gravel and stones grounds help Sauvignon, Semillon and Ugni Blanc to develop themselves (White grapes)

The average year of our vineyard is 30 and is planted 4800 feet/hectares.
Our vineyard has a southern slopes exposure which improve the maturation of berries and reduce the grey rot

The producing of our Cuvées is made of our family's Traditions respect:
we are working the soil, following-up each plot of vineyard, thinning out the leaves for a good maturity of grapes, maintenancing of yields, harvesting by machine and hand.
