In 2013, in order to diversify the cereal farm, in consultation with their sons, Étienne Hautier and Annie Demarbais decided to give a new impulse to their farm and to plant on part of their land, just over 22000 feet of vines "inter-specific" or "PIWI" varieties. These vines are treated as naturally as possible. In addition, since spring 2016, they have decided to intensify and revitalize the micro-organic life of the vineyard. This type of crop aims to promote exchanges between the plant and its environment, land and air. This is the principle of biodynamics.
In April 2015, almost 8,500 feet of vines were planted in pinot noir and chardonnay to present you at the end of 2019, a quality sparkling and test, about 1400 feet of grape vines derived from the Bordeaux grape varieties, adapted to our northern regions , promising a wine worthy of there. At present, the vineyard has an area of 8.50 hectares.
In the fall of 2015, the first micro grape harvest took place, between 21 September for the "Solaris" grape variety and 27 October for the last two grape varieties. Previously, during the summer, a "green" grape harvest was carried out, which means reducing the number of grapes by removing more than half of the grapes present on each vine. The purpose of this operation is, firstly, to concentrate the sugar in the remaining grapes and, on the other hand, not to exhaust the young vines.
