The Dubard Family is for more than 30 years, the most famous producers of refreshing and reasonably priced wines in South-West France. The family members offer differing personalities of graduate oenologists, wine makers and viticulturists who together make up a dynamic and passionate team that has been renowned in the Bergerac wine region for decades. Being receptive to their terroir, combining common sense and long experience with ceaseless wine-making and viticulture: these are the founding principles on which the family has relied in their exceptionnel cuvées. They are also ongoing on the environmental label "HVE" (High Environmental Value).
The Dubard family settled in Bergerac in the late 1970s as winemakers. The vines are situated on calcareous-clay hillsides exposed to south/southwest sunlight. Trellising is adapted to spacing between rows to maximize maturation. Integrated farming practices are undertaken to protect the environment and of the personality of the terroir. This also guarantees the excellent sanitary state of the crop and its final quality.
After de-stemming and crushing, the grapes are directly transferred to stainless tanks at their arrival in the cellar. The temperature is rather low (15°C/59F) at first for a few days to maximize extracting flavor. The juice then undergoes a short 2-weeks and cool (26°C/78,8F) fermentation with regular daily pump over. A short maceration run with low temperatures preserve fruity aromas and supple tannins. As soon as fermentation is finished, the wine is drained into stainless steel tanks where malolactic fermentation and ageing takes place prior to being racked and blended.
