Treatments with macerations and infusions, naturally grassed vines, Landaise ewes to mow between and below our ranks, energy independence, blind blending, music therapy, nesting boxes for blue tits and bats, alcoholic fermentation in barrels, temperature sensors he electric waves on the vines... are some of our experiments. It's up to you to choose your visit to share the truth of our daily life... For epicureans and lovers of authenticity, after a guided tour where we tell you about our experiences but also our convictions in the vineyards as well as in the cellars, we offer a rich tasting of 6 wines, seated in the heart of the barrel cellar around a plate of local products; bull sausage, Medoc attic... but also homemade fluted. A nice moment of sharing.

About the host

Treatments with plant infusions, grassed vines, energy independence thanks to our photovoltaic panels, shearing and natural fertilization with our Landes sheep, blue tit and bat nest boxes, lightweight glass bottles for a reduced carbon footprint, blind blending, alcoholic fermentations in barrels, music therapy... and new experiences every year. Why do we do this?
First, we are convinced that we are improving the quality of our wines; the last 35 vintages have received 147 awards. Secondly, we want to protect the richness of our terroir for a future that will continue to tell the story of the excellence of Haut-Médoc; our choices are related to this. Finally, we wish to leave to our 7 children a quality environment which will allow them to blossom fully in these marvelous professions of the vine, on a planet as healthy and generous as possible.
And then, for us, to receive people in the vineyard is to make them love our wines as much as we love them by sharing our convictions but also the truth of our daily life... and our wines. See you soon!
