Domaine Prieuré-Roch

The domaine is certified bio – it was a long and painful process as yields plummeted, but year by year as balance returned to the vineyard the yields in the best vineyards edged up from a miserly 15 hl/ha to around 25 today – their eventual aim is 30hl/ha. The only ‘feeding’ comes from a compost made from crushed vine shoots and grape marc composted with a little cow manure. Herbicides are banned and weeding done manually.
