Working the soil

Controlling yields by the right choice of plants, pruning methods and soil maintenance is the constant aim of the firm. Having pioneered grassing in their region – either every other row or under each row, depending on the individual plots – the Launay brothers always experiment first to check that their practices are in line with their principles. They are always willing to renew old equipment (plough, inter-vine hoes, blades, etc.) to improve soil maintenance : hoeing, mowing and grassing, etc. while adapting to the demands of the terroir.
