Traditional winegrowers

Working the vines

Suduiraut winegrowers allow time for the terroir to give its very best.

The vines’ age (a majority of them are over 30 years old) is a guarantee of exceptional quality, giving well-nourished and more concentrated grapes.

Short pruning allows the clusters to gain more sunlight, meaning that the grapes will be smaller and of higher quality.  

The soil is worked in keeping with traditional Bordeaux methods: the work is done by hand and organic fertilisers are used.

Harvesting is meticulous and painstaking: picking is staggered (the vines are inspected up to five times) to keep pace with Botrytis development, and clusters are most often only partially picked. Sometimes, however, in years with great concentration, whole clusters are picked to ensure that the wines are well balanced.
