In our vineyards, we focus on varieties such as L’Acadie, Osceola Muscat, Seyval Blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling, Lucie Kuhlmann, Leon Millot, Triomphe d’Alsace and Castel.
We have amazing partnerships with contract growers that support our quality standards and volume, while also allowing us to introduce other varieties into the portfolio.
The vineyard team is very meticulous about their practices to ensure that the vines are given the very best chance to succeed and provide the utmost in quality.
Marcel and the team employ the latest technologies available, be it in harvesting, weather monitoring, laser bird control, or advanced frost protection, to name a few. Our goal is to ensure we deliver the best grape possible to our winemaking team.
