We're telling you about their Winery
|The Ferme de Bois Moisset is a family Winery dating back to the 18th century. Today it consists of 40 hectares of agricultural land (excluding vineyards) and several hectares of vines located in the Gaillac vineyard. But the Ferme du Bois Moisset is also two personalities, Philippe Maffre and Sylvie Ledran. They have always been involved in the "Confédération Paysanne" (Peasant Confederation) and they put forward a different agricultural model. A more coherent model for nature which respects microbial life and mankind. When we listen to them, we really feel that it is real, that they live in harmony with their environment, that they are lucid. Here there is no monoculture, just what is needed: wheat, cows and wine! It's true that it's a lot of work, but the result is there, they produce their own bread and lentils that they market in addition to their wine production.||
The vineyard is located on the left bank of the Tarn and consists of 15 hectares of low-yielding vines on light slopes with silty or gravelly soils (an extension of the Bordeaux vineyard, in fact). The Winery chose to go organic in the 1990's and vinification is carried out without the addition of sulphur.
Philippe Maffre grows mainly Braucol (the Fer Servadou of the Aveyron), Duras and Prunelard (two indigenous grape varieties of the Tarn) as well as Syrah. Always listening and supported by his sons and his wife Sylvie, Philipe is always trying new things when making his wines. The result: the wines are generous, fresh, not heady and all at a low price.
