Little vine will grow old

4 October 2021 In the wineyard News

We are lucky to have very old plots of 100 yo Grenache, old Cinsault, Mourvèdre and Syrah coming from our elders.

We are trying to follow their steps and put some plots on hold for 7 years.

They have been planted with rootstocks 4 years ago and time has come now to graft them on feet.

The selection of rootstocks and graft was done very carefully with our nursery partner Lilian Berillon.

Vitifgreffe has then grafted with the traditional “T Bud” technique in order to improve the healing and longevity of the vine.
