Mating disruption in viticulture

It is now been more than 10 years that we have been fighting the dreaded vine moth larvae without insecticides (you can read our article of June 24, 2011). The principle behind “mating disruption” (the French translation means literally “sexual confusion”) remains the same, but the tools and methods have evolved. Let’s first review what […]

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: […]

2018 – A surprising vintage in which we couldn’t afford to let down our guard…

At the cusp of autumn, I will try, as usual, to give you my read on this 2018 vintage. The vinification isn’t yet complete, and even if it was a vintage that often left us puzzled, its current contours confirm its very seductive quality.

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!

What’s more expensive: organic or conventional farming?

We hear it all the time: eating organic is more expensive! It’s true that most organic products are more expensive than their conventional counterparts. But are they really? Not if we integrate the environmental, health and social costs of conventional agriculture. Impact on the quality of water: the best quantified effects are those related to […]

2016, a vintage of filled with promise…

2016’s growing season was exceptionally favorable to the vine. Nature has given us a vintage that won’t soon be forgotten. After a mild and slightly rainy winter, a cool wet spring triggered a somewhat delayed bud break (marking the end of winter dormancy, bud break is the moment when the new leaves push through their […]
