The steep slopes of Balloquets are planted with wild flowers, and characterized with amethyst crystal located underground, incrusted in the red granite rocks with quartz, from which Pollen is the result. A refined pleasure…
Farming: Estate certified Terra Vitis. Sustainable farming, favoring the biodiversity, grapes harvested in small cases.

« Everything is tailored to the needs of our vines and much effort is put forth by hand in the vineyard, because no great wine can be made without exceptional grapes! Which at my estate are handpicked, when fully ripened, by a happy and loyal band of harvence. »
