The vineyards have a South and Southwest exposition. They practice beekeeping in the parcels and encourage a wide amount of biodiversity. Their 17 hectares of vines form a small part of their 350ha farm, where they tend to livestock and also grow poppies, barley, wheat, rapeseed.

The grapes were destemmed and underwent spontaneous fermentation in open vats outside. In 2017, fermentation took 2 weeks, and the grapes spent that entire time on skins with regular punchdowns. The wine was then pressed, sedimented for 2 days, then racked into steel tanks where it spent 18 months prior to a light sulphite addition and bottling.

Unrefined. Unfiltered.
