The Organic and Sustainable Use in Vineyards
Their vineyards cover around 16 hectares in red and white AOC Beaujolais villages, Cote de Brouilly and Morgon Cote de Py. The name comes from their location near the Brouilly Mountains, precisely in the Quincie, Cercie, Odenas, and Saint Lager. The region has clayey soil with a lot of sunshine that gives a stable structure to the wines. The organic and sustainable use in their estate helps in preserving the natural environment and the health of their vineyards for future use. Mostly the Gamay grape, famous in the region, is used to make their award-winning red and white wines. Gamay wines generally have a fresh, fruity aroma and are light, pure wines. Controlled fermentation of wine takes place under regulated temperature, and the wines are allowed to age in stainless steel tanks to attain the desired qualities.
