We finish the pruning quietly. As the saying goes, pruning late is a protection against late freezes. When spring arrives, the buds at the end of the branch are the first to emerge. If, like last year, a sudden cold covers the vines at the end of March, the buds will be destroyed, but those located at the base, still inhibited, can take over.
To take into account current sanitary conditions, the Strasbourg wine exhibit is postponed to June 4th to 7th 2021. We look forward to meeting you.

The newcomer to the range, Transmission (70% Syrah) comes from a beautiful vintage, still based on firm tannins. 90/100. Favorite.

The vine grows quickly. We take care of it, with partial removal of buds, and removal of unwanted shoots allows for controlling and regulating the yield. We protect the leave with first treatment based on suffer, copper, orange essential oil, and yeast cell based stimulant.
