TIMETABLE OF THE VINE

September, the time of harvest. Thirty people come gently pick the precious grapes of Pinot and Chardonnay, fruit of the work of a year.

October, the time of the uprooting of old vines, after about 40 years of care.

November – December, size, prepares a first draft of the work. The old structures are removed, leaving only the finest sized strands.

January – March, Saint Vincent patron saint of winegrowers is celebrated, the lapidary can begin. Secateurs are going well, vine after vine, vineyard after vineyard. This is the longest work of the year.

April, the vine is pruned, it remains to bind. Each size of strand is so attached to the linker thread.

May, the vine grows, we must now break the strands without grapes or pushing haphazardly to provide all the sap necessary to best bunches.

June – July, time trellising. The strands are separated from each other and retracted between two son that maintain them. In order to obtain a perfectly aligned hedge where each cluster benefit from the necessary sunlight.
