The vines are planted on a mix of clay, sand and limestone soils, and, except for a more enlightened approach to trellising, are tended in a traditional way. The vines range from a little over ten years of age to thick-trunked, un-grafted centurions.

The winery is a simple affair with some basic modern tools, such as stainless steel tanks and temperature control, complementing a traditional vaulted stone storage cellar.
