We're talking to you about his Winery
|Philippe Wies cherishes its vines planted in the lands a few miles from Perpignan, on the appellation Maury. 13 hectares, surrounded by scrubland and protected by a cliff environment, which take advantage of the tramontane and the sea entrances. The schist soils give the wines a very specific character. Ploughing by tractor and caterpillar... or even by horse! Flora and fauna are respected and insecticides are prohibited. Philippe even considers all the life that surrounds them as objective allies for a quality harvest.||
Natural yeasts, no filtration, no or little sulphur, these are the processes adopted by winemaker. Carbonic' maceration sometimes or destemming. No pigeage, pumping over sparingly to give finesse and freshness to the different vintages. Fermentation is finished in barrels of 5 to 6 wines.
The wines of La Petite Baigneuse are superb, full of freshness, very natural and sulphur-free.
