O’Vineyards, Villemoustaussou, Languedoc-Roussillon, France

We pour over the vines, keep careful watch on the grapes, manually removed the haphazard, old trellis system and replaced it with a five wire system that supports the vines to grow far beyond the tops of the 2 meter galvanized posts.

The vines are tended to carefully and receive a great deal of care in the form of well-timed treatments, hand pruning, deleafing and a manual ebourgeonage. Between a reduced taille and hand-prunings, yields are kept exceptionally low.

Two separate wineries have been built on the premise, both allowing for all of the harvest work to be done by gravity. These buildings also serve to house the stainless steel egrappoir, sorting table, hydraulic elevating bin, hydraulic press, manual press and our oak barrels.
