For all of their vine-growing they apply the principles of biological agriculture and bio-dynamism. Not one molecule of any synthetic or systemic product (that could contaminate the plants) is used in any of their treatments. Their treatments, known as “contact” treatments, are made up of infusions from plants (valerian, nettles, garlic etc), clay, sulphur and copper (as little as possible). As many treatments of the vines and soil as possible are governed by the lunar calendar. The aim is to keep plants, soil and bio-diversity thriving from one year to the next and so produce well-balanced grapes, with the greatest possible respect for the environment.
