A time for observation and reflection…
Meticulous care is taken in the vineyard throughout the year in order to preserve the full potential of the outstanding terroir. The harvesting period is therefore a determining factor. From early August, the grapes are tasted and their degree of ripeness analysed in the field by our oenologist, vineyard manager, and cellarmaster.
When the perfect balance between sugar, acidity, and phenolic and aromatic compounds has been achieved and the grapes are perfectly healthy, the harvest can finally begin.
Our early-ripening Sauvignon Blancs are picked first (generally in late-August), followed by the Merlots. The Cabernet Sauvignons are picked last.
