The Tillage

For over 4 years, each year we have increased the percentage of tilled soil, with the utmost respect for the land. Over 170 hectares are tilled multiple times by ploughs (from February to July) and are treated with no herbicides. The first consequence is the modification of the water supply to the plant: the roots descend deeper into the ground; the grass between the rows of vines also prevents the water from evaporating. We also support local artisans who seek to reprise techniques of the past such as ploughing the land by horse (specifically horses from the Ardennes region), entrusting them several parcels of land to work on.
