This study also revealed the excellent potential of this terroir and the possibility of producing high quality wines. As a consequence, Bordeaux Science Agro initiated an ambitious planting programme based on high-density planting, soil preparation and respect for the environment. For a given yield, this high-density planting allows fewer bunches of grapes to grow on the vines leading to higher concentrations of juice in the berries. Preparing the soil permits the control of soil flora as well as enabling the vines to extend their roots deeper in search of nourishment.
We produce between 100,000 and 150,000 bottles of red and white wine each year.
