Creation of its own Winery in the Loire Valley
In 2008, Noëlla took the plunge and bought grapes. From 2009, she rents 8.5 ha of vines, organic since 1991. Finally, in 2011, she bought her first vines (3.8 ha at Bois Lucas). Work in the vineyards: surface ploughing, disks, interceps, claws. Manual harvest, in boxes.
Characteristic grape varieties of the Loire: sauvignon, côt, cabernet franc...
Vinification: for the reds, vatting in wooden vats, whole bunches, then a carbo on 'Mon Cher' and a traditional one on 'La Boudinerie', the two gamay vintages. For the côt, millefeuilles between whole bunches and destemmed. The whites, that is to say the sauvignon: direct pressing, tapped after a night of settling, maturing for one year or more, barrels and tons (of 400 l).
