Responsible viticulture

From vine to wine

The Les Davids estate stands amid a unique and unspoilt terroir. A vineyard, patiently harvested by hand, stands at an altitude of 580 metres and nestles in a valley on the edge of Mont Ventoux and the Vaucluse Mountains.

It is expressly run according to the principles of organic polyculture, guaranteeing the  protection of biodiversity and the presence, in the grapes and the winery, of natural yeast whose quality guarantees perfect fermentation. The combination of these qualities - both human and natural - means that we can produce exceptional wines year after year, and in sustainable quantities.

from the selection of grape varieties to cellaring

“Gravity-flow winemaking, which does not affect the quality of grapes, helps bring out the expression of wines in harmony with their terroir, drawing freshness and minerality from Les Davids’ altitude and its soils.”

Diversity of soils and terroirs

The geological variety of the estate’s soils and subsoils gives our wines personality and character. Thanks to expert knowledge of the geology of the terroir, of every single plot, Les Davids is able to select the best plants for each one. Our wines reflect the perfect relationship between the soil, climate, grape variety and know-how.

Managing the vines

When their leaves fall off in November, the vines begin their winter rest, and when the sap stops flowing, preparatory pruning can begin.

The Les Davids estate uses three types of pruning, selecting the one which is best suited to the terroir and the grape variety. On plots of Viognier and Chardonnay, varieties which are not tremendously fertile, the Guyot Poussard pruning system is preferred. This age-old pruning system, also known as Gobelet pruning, has been used since Roman times and is perfect for very vigorous varieties, our unevenly terraced slopes and plots which are difficult to irrigate.
Used in many parts of the world, the Cordon de Royat is an intermediate pruning technique which maintains high quality by reducing the yield and vigour.

At the first signs of spring, the whole vineyard is covered with a mixture of leguminous plants and local flowers. They attract predatory insects and are an important source of organic matter that stimulates the activity and biological life of the soil. The vine-growers also amend the soil with manure from Rove goats, an indigenous breed, to reactivate the microorganisms in it.

Bud-break is the sign that the vines are coming back to life. The vine-growers ensure healthy growth through very careful trellising, which is critical for proper grape ripening.
