Une véritable harmonie entre nature et viticulture vous attend au Domaine de La Vigne Blanche

From pruning to grape-picking

For a quality wine, it is essential to take care ofits grape.

At Domaine de la Vigne Blanche we constantly endeavour to work as close to nature as possible. Our aimis to have a very great quality grapewhich will then be more apparent on vinification.It is impossible to make a qualitywine with a poor grape. There is no technique, addition orany kind of product which can achieve this.

From pruning to grape-picking we endeavour to do ourbest. Each vine plant is worked manually 12 to 15times a year from pruning to grape-picking.
The grape-harvesting seasonextends from the end of the month of September to the beginning of the month ofNovember, depending on the grapevarieties and their maturity.

The gathering the grapes is done manually with a very simple instruction: « Anything you would not like to eat should not beput in the tray », i.e. no rotting grapes (botrytis), unripe grapes, grapes damaged by wasps or birds,dry grapes or grapes attacked by acid rot (vinegar), and no leaves either!

Each bunch of grapesis sorted individually and what is put into the tray must beflawless.

Some of our approximately fifteen grape-pickershave been working at the Domaine de la Vigne Blanche for 10 or even 15 years!

The moment for pruning is from mid-December onwards. This is done withelectric pruning shears. In March, the shootsare bent over the supporting wire.

From April onwards, the vinestarts growing and the time for disbuddingarrives. 6 to 7 buds are selected, which will form the wood the bunches ofgrapes will grow on that year.

A team of 2 to 3 persons completes the team for the year. These same personswill monitor « the leaf work » until the end of July.

In May, it is necessary to train,i.e. pass the growing wood between the wire which will support it.

In June, trimming occurs,when leaves facing the bunches of grapes are trimmed for better aeration in thegrape bunch zones.

In July, the « green harvests » take place: removal of the number ofbunches of grapes necessary in order to arrive at the limited yield desired.Generally, this is 600-800g/m2 for the specialities.

From the month of August onwards, the vine does its work alone and we await thegrape-harvesting seasons.
