Soil:The vines are planted in a blend of sand and gravel, a mixture that captures and retains the sun’s heat easily. Its sandy composition particularly encourages acidity in Sauvignon Blanc, providing an ideal & complementary terroir to this tart variety.
Viticulture:A portion of the vines are still worked with horse-drawn plows. Husband and wife team Maryline and Jean-Jacques Smith still harvest completely by hand
Vinification:Fermented with indigenous yeasts in temperature-controlled tanks, creating the most natural wines possible that express the typicity of the Quincy soils.
