Micro-Cru Philosophy

In pursuit of distinctiveness and quality, we have implemented a micro-cru viticultural philosophy, which further divides each vineyard block into smaller sections based on the individual terroir and soil types. Each micro-cru features varieties, clones, rootstocks, and viticultural practices best suited for its terroir. The micro-crus are tended, harvested, and vinified separately, each becoming a unique expression of its particular vineyard section. Only in the final stages of winemaking do we combine the micro-crus to create our finished blends.

When replanting the vineyards we developed detailed soil, topographical and climatic maps to gain a full understanding of the intricacies of our terrain. To accommodate the complexity of this site we subdivided the vineyards into 63 individual micro-crus.
