Winemaking

Wherever possible we go with regional tradition but if modern techniques help improve quality and consistency then they are implemented. We tend to avoid international, ubiquitous grape varieties such as Cabernet, Chardonnay and Sauvignon. Nor do we make Vin de Pays d’Oc.  Supreme quality, purity of character and typicity of region are uppermost in our vision and our results.

Our rosés vary in winemaking style from region to region. However our goals remain the same – a beautiful pale colour, intense aromatics and a good structure that can mean drinking with or without food and a longer than usual life. Night harvesting, long and cool fermentation, natural yeasts and early bottling are the general procedures. We don’t age our rosés in barrels or allow the use of oak staves or chips which ensures our rosés retain maximum freshness and beautiful primary aromatics.
