All the grapes are in the cellar by now.
It was a long harvest, interrupted by some rain, but it was a great harvest.

All the fruit arrived in the cellar in perfect condition, healthy, clean, no rot, no disease.

Again the year long work in the vineyard was rewarded.

But now the real work starts, vinification.
Transforming the fruit into great wine.

The White is bubbling away,
The Rosé is is going into oak,

while the Reds are getting the " foot massage" or pigeage as it is called in french.

We use the traditional way , no machines, no robots but real human feet massaging the grapes to give their best.
