Counting sheep…in our vineyards!

Each winter some 200 ewes and lambs call our organic vineyards home, where they feast upon wild vegetation.  The troop has the run of a one-hectare block of vines for about two days, before the shepherd moves them to a new block. When the vegetation gets out of hand, we only have a few options: […]

THUS VOX IS BORN…

At Château de Nages, we’ve always known that winemaking is an ancient story here. What a surprise when it was revealed before our very eyes! A few years ago, when construction work at the estate required archaeological excavations, INRAP’s research showed that some of our plots were on a wine-growing site dating back to ancient […]

Splitting Wood

The trade press is just beginning to talk about a topic that greatly concerns many winemakers here in France – the sharp increase in vine mortality due to what is euphemistically called “wood diseases.” Every year, an average plot in France can lose between 1.5% and 3.5% of its population (in a decade that means […]

2500 years of passion for wine

Here in Costières de Nîmes, the Volques are our wine-making ancestors. No one can deny the contributions made by the Romans in our beautiful area, but when they arrived here in 121 BC, they found an epicurean civilization that had already been cultivating vines for 4 centuries — the Volques Arécomiques.  This Celtic confederation founded […]

The concert of the year 2014

A wine owes its character to the potential of its soil and how it’s interpreted by the winemaker. I often compare winemaking to music — the results depends both on the musical score and the musician. Reducing the equation to just these two parameters is a simplification that I can easily overlook, but it ignores […]
