Viticulture

Traditional ploughing is performed on the soil of our vineyard and no weed-killer is used.

Organic manures are made with vegetal-based composts.
Bud removal, trellising and leaf removal are carefully done by hand.

We are engaged in a process of abandonment of the use of chemical synthetic pesticides on all of our vineyards.

Thus "grown like in a garden", within an orderly and well preserved environment, our vines produce early concentrated tasty grapes which have the smoothness and brightness of fresh fruit aromas we wish to obtain in our wines.

In an effort to balance our carbon footprint, we manage as well a forest area equal in size to our vineyards.

Wines

Clos Floridène produces a dry white wine and a red wine of Appellation Graves. We have been producing in the Floridène vineyard a blush wine with bursting aromas since 2004.

Produced from young vines, Clos Floridène second Label (white and red) is called Drapeaux de Floridene.
