Since that time, two generation have been managing the company with the same passion and philosophy for quality.Today, they are famous in France and all over the world for the quality of the wines of Provence and for their premium hand crafted sparkling wines.
Vineyard
The field is mechanically harvested under cover of darkness during late August in order to shield the grapes from the heat of the sun.
Winemaking
The grapes are then separated, and part of the harvest undergoes direct pressing, while the other part is macerated during 7 - 8 hours at low temperature of 7° to 8°C. The two streams of wine liquids then are captured in stainless steel tanks, and further processed by static racking. /nHard fermentation lasts around 8-10 days at low temperature of 14°C. This technique enables the preservation of aromas.
