Dégorgement sauvage

Dégorgement sauvage

Outdoor activity. Some people sometimes ask us how we disgorge a sparkling wine. Here is the answer in picture of what not to do, which is better than a long speech. Obviously the loss rate is quite high. Also, it is even better to prefer the non-disgorged version. A big thank you to Solène who played deminers with us that day! read more

Harvesting our wheat

Today is the party! wheat is harvested for this year on a perfect date ... by pure 'chance' of availability of the harvester: a day when the moon is in Leo, when the north wind and the sun finish drying up well. enough to encourage us to put more; -) ... we look forward to eating the bread ... A big thank you to our baker friends for the adventure! read more

De l'herbe partout

De l'herbe partout

This year it is there, the grass is well established. and we assume our rather particular cultural choice of total grass cover. In Beaujolais it is still a rather rare thing, it must be confessed that it is not at all a method adapted to low vines (traditional goblet pruning), but what a pleasure to feel life in the ground and on the ground. What a joy to see the floral diversity gradually expanding. even if it's a big job. While waiting to find better. this year we have more than a hundred brushcutter hours ... read more

2007 - Beehives in the vineyard

2007 - Beehives in the vineyard

Happy-viticulture / Viti-apiculture It is often said that vines and beehives do not mix. It's written in beekeeping manuals in bold type. So why in the middle of the white clover and the flowery bands are all these little animals foraging? June 2008, thank you to JC for his hive, we try a denial: I put a hive in the middle of the plot ... So far, they seem to like each other. read more

Millésime 2006

One more There you have it, the 2006 harvest is in our cellars. The last filled vats will be pressurized tomorrow and the scent that perfumes our vats already augurs well for a very fruitful vintage ... See you on November 17 for a Beaujolais Nouveau worthy of the name. 5 picking days for 108 hl of production (45hl / ha). In our flowering and grassy vines. A great moment, in a small team (18 people). We even found the time to prepare a rosé cuvée ... this summer on your tables ... Thank you for that to Pierre and Benjamin our German intern. Between friends Also a great first, this year, we inaugurated our small harvest with friends. Everyone is ready to start over. The principle: you are fed, housed and you go home with a few bottles, in return for which you agree to twist your back 4 pm during your weekend to cut grapes ... hehe .. advice to amateurs ... ! (just send me an email to be notified of the dates and conditions). In short, after two weeks of life at full speed, beautiful encounters and sunshine, we are starting to prepare for the primeur campaign and our end-of-year events. We count on you. read more
