Soils are mainly sandy around La Royère and on the Soleian terraces, with more or less limestone gravel. We bring organic and mineral amendments to balance the soils and prevent the ground to runoff.
We use the gobelet pruning method and keep two main branches. We leave 5 or 6 spurs with 2 or 3 eyes on it to restrict the average yield under 45 hectoliters (~1200 gal.) per hectare.
The grapes are either harvested by hand or with a machine, which depends on the terroirs and the varieties.
