Work in progress - Vineyards

Concerning the vines, 22,000 seedlings have just been planted, under the right moon and with a machine guided by GPS. Tradition and modernity are the watchwords in Fontenille. The three planted varietal vines Rolle, Cinsault, Syrah will allow the production of delicious nectars in the three colors in a few years. The old vines are equally cherished, with the installation of new trellis for three hectares, the replacement of the missing ones as well as the implementation of the irrigation which will be managed with a qualitative objective. The young vines are already sprouting out from the grown while the weeding out of the seedling is ending... mechanically performed on the entire vineyard. No more herbicides as the conversion to organic farming has started.Concerning the cellar, the changes are even more impressive! The former cellar, located in the historical part of the Castle, under some old vaults, was completely demolished. Now, you can find an art gallery instead. And in the middle of the vineyard now stands the new winery, with walls which are becoming taller and taller everyday.Semicircular concrete vats with perfect curves, have already taken their place. In a month, their sisters in stainless steel will keep them company as well as state of the art technological facilities: a new generation of harvest reception, a computerized control of the cold, a nitrogen generator to work in an environment without any oxygen.Crafts manship also holds an important part two truncated oak vats, custom handmade by the best caskmakers. Tradition and modernity. Finally, concerning the wine, it is the most unexpected change. A new packaging which impresses by its rigour and its stature: a balanced Burgundian bottle, a sober but efficient label, a stopper in 100% natural cork.No extravagance, only some simplicity and precision. There are also new flavors: a subtle and flowery white wine, a silky soft red wine which waited three years in barrels, and an explosive and comtempory rosé wine, adorned with its new gold medal won at CGA. Tradition and modernity.
