Expertise, commitment and enjoyment

Winemakers are gardeners who shape the vine-covered hills. We tend the vines with this idea in our heads, endeavouring to respect the environment in every way possible.

Agapé
the wine for sharing
The word Agapé comes from the Greek for unconditional love and it sums up perfectly the winery’s philosophy.

We are driven by our love of the terroir and the vines, hard work and wine as a way of life! But possibly even more importantly, we also love sharing our wines and getting together to celebrate what nature has offered us.

One of the great pleasures of making wine is also the enjoyment of sharing it with others, meeting people and talking about wine. Anyone who has already been to our winery knows that wine is a way of life that we share.

The benefits of organic production

We put a lot of time and effort into caring for our vines, using organic methods which align closely with natural cycles. Most of our parcels are vinified separately, with minimal intervention. 

From plant to fruit

Among the vines

We make our own compost for fertilising the vines. The vines are ploughed every second row in spring to unpack the soil and stimulate it when it heats up. The aim is to produce healthy grapes, with good aromatic concentration. We use a horse-drawn plough for narrow and isolated parcels. Pruning, binding, debudding, trellising and leaf removal, as well as the actual harvesting, are all carried out manually.

Harvesting

Harvesting is a crucial step, where it is vital to make sure that the grapes have reached optimum maturity for producing well-balanced, fresh and expressive wines free of any heaviness. The grapes are carefully sorted at picking and gently pressed in whole bunches.

From grape to wine

In the cellar

The grape juice ferments gently, in vats and stainless-steel tanks. After racking, the wines are allowed to mature on fine lees before they are bottled the following summer. Our Pinots are aged in burgundy casks or in barrels. All our wine is dry, except the late-harvested Helios range.

We believe organic agriculture is also a way of expressing a social bond, where artisanal work allows everyone to achieve their aims.
Balance

Our aim is to allow the vines to find their natural balance through contained growth and the development of deep roots.

Soils

The soil plays a crucial role in producing top quality grapes and must be tended carefully in the interest of sustainable agriculture.

Biodiversity

We encourage biodiversity in our vineyards by only ploughing every second row, leaving the grass to grow in the others. Fruit trees around the parcels also help maximise biodiversity.

Landscaping

In our philosophy, winemakers are also gardeners who shape and maintain the landscapes they farm by their individual and collective efforts.

Artisanal work

We believe organic agriculture is also a way of expressing a social bond, where artisanal work allows everyone to achieve their aims.
