All of our vines are grown sustainably. We work the soil in the winter and proceed with natural cover planting between the rows of vines in the summer. The vines are trained in the gobelet style, cordon permament style or the Guyot style depending on the variety and plot. Bud pruning, leaf-thinning and harvesting are done manually due to the steeply sloping terrain that most of our vines are grown on. The grapes are transported in small crates and remain intact until they reach the cellar, thereby retaining all their flavour.

We grow and harvest each vine separately in order to preserve the character unique to each plot and thereby produce individual wines of exceptional quality.

Lake Geneva creates a natural reflection for the south-facing vines and helps the grapes ripen.
