An encounter with authenticity: Saint-Paul wine, in sync with nature...
Under the western ramparts, steeped in sunshine, 2 hectares of terraced vineyard produce a very small quantity of wine. (It was served to François 1 (1538) and Vauban (1700) on official visits.) Grapes for both red and white wines are harvested by hand under the supervision of Julien Bertaina, an expert in organic and biodynamic wine-making.
Biodynamic cultivation marks a return to nature's way: sustainable, at nature's pace, using soil which is naturally healthy and rich. The vines are better armed against disease, insects and climatic pressure.
Thanks to the quality of the fruit and in-depth knowledge of wine-making processes, nature can run its course via natural fermentation: no yeast or additives or industrial processes. Only a very low amount of sulphites are used.
