Benefiting from optimal sunshine, gentle slopes which avoid the stagnation of water at the feet of the vines during the autumn rains and plunging towards the sea, the vine, naturally ventilated, is exceptionally healthy: the last epidemic of Philloxera dates to the 1900s! Their winemaking methods combine modernity and tradition: thermo-regulated stainless steel vat rooms, oak barrels and tanks well as the presence of the terraces of the family house to dry the Muscat, Rappu and Impassitu in the old-fashioned way ("passerillage").
