HISTORY AND TRADITION 

The winery

A Bernese tithing building, part of the Bursins Castle until the Revolution, burned down and was then abandoned. It became a winery in 1915.
At our family estate established in Tartegnin for now five generations, we cultivate some ten hectares of vineyards worked with a respect for nature. The wine is produced with the same spirit. In recent years, we have expanded our infrastructure and invested in modern equipment at the cutting edge of technology. To obtain quality wines while preserving originality, character and terroir, it is necessary to use traditional practices, from the vine to marketing.

 


The tool of winegrowers

The oenologist is the person who oversees all stages of wine production, from the vine to the bottle on the table. He has a palate that does not mislead him. He is both a technician and a chemist, as well as an outstanding taster. It is he who determines the harvesting date.

The 4 seasons

The season begins in mid January and ends in March. At that time, the vine is dormant and the sap is down . Jean-Claude passes by each vine (about 60 000 in all) and cuts off the old shoots making room for new growth.
