WINTER

At the beginning of winter, the vine is asleep, vinifications are almost finished…

Malolactic fermentation

The free-run wine remains in vats or in barrels; a second fermentation then happens, the malic acid is converted into lactic acid due to certain bacteria and the result is a smoother wine.

Pruning

This is the selection of the fruiting canes or « astes » to limit the yield in the following harvest.

Earthing up

Building up earth around the base of the vine in order to protect it from frost.

Bending

After pruning, the remaining astes are attached.
