The vineyard

Out of respect for the environment new methods of viticulture have gradually been adopted at the Domaine les Croix, eliminating all use of herbicides.IMG_2835

All our plots are covered with grass and managed using atomizers (notched hollow discs).  Within the rows the grass is mowed and left on the ground.  In between the vines, beneath the rows, the grass is controlled mechanically and hydraulically. Natural vegetation management, creates competition with the vine, limiting its growth and improving the ripeness of the grape, while improving the soil structure and biodiversity.
