For our winery equipment we’ve selected the best !

To filter the grape juice, we use a percolation system through vulcanic gravel. Tastewise this is a interesting method. Barrels are used for two and a half year, they ensure a good oxygenation while the wine is ripening. One of our special wines to discover is the Chasselas aged in oak barrels. To allow a perfect aging, we stock these bottles for a couple of years in our cellar. Some of our local chefs prepare special dishes to be tasted with this special wine. And with success !
These wines are highly praised, but still quite unknown to the public.
