In our vineyards :
In order to ensure quality, at Domaine Barville we will select our best fruits grape by grape. During vintage we will proceed to 2 pickings, a first one for our main cuvée and a second one 10 days later for our prestige cuvées in order to ensure exeptional maturity.
Sustainable agriculture is applied in all our vineyards and we aim to work with nature as its simple servant and not its master. All our estate are hand harvested.
Because learning and a non stopping curve, our team is seconded by a consultant viticulturist and a consultant onoelogist both specialised in the quality development of our Southern Rhône wines.
In our cellar :
Technology evolves also and we have recently invested in an « Égreneur », the most qualitative system yet developped to sort our Grenache grapes. It indeed manages to remove the berries from the stalk without damaging the very fragile grenache fruit. An essential processus in ensuring the maturity and freshness of our crop from handpicking in teh vineyard all the way to the fermentation VAT.
For all our prestige cuvées, bottling is done by gravity and without any filtration. At the end of their maturing stage, these wines are stored in neutral stainless stell vats without the use of any machines.
We limit all movement and pumping of our wines in order to prevent oxydation and sudden temperature changes. All in order to preserve the natural immune system of a wine and limit SO2 addition at bottling. This will allow the best expression of our terroir throughout all of these exeptional wines. We aim to stay as natural as possible in order to ensure the authenticity of our cuvées.
