Vineyard

A wide array of cepages creates a diverse palate of natural choice, the perfect device for artistic creation especially in the unrestrained hands of a curios winemaker researcher.

Fifteen hues are the living proof of tailored, agronomic reflection that brings forth rich cuvees, deep and beautiful. Perfect remedies for boredom and monotony. Some of these wines are made in small batches, rare occasions of bottled indulgence, aesthetic marvels of delicacy.

The expatriates, foreigners enlisted in a wine-lover's cause - Chenin, Chardonnay, Viognier, Aligote, Syrah, Merlot, Pinot Noir, the originality of their chromatic scales marrying notes inspired by the stave of savour.

These exotic pearls of new sensations stand beside the elegant and classic Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Tanat and Cot.

Ribonnet shares its grace with those who visit. In 2012 Christian Gerber planted a new variety, Marselan, on virgin soil.

Since 2001, all the vineyard is conducted on organic way meaning we are not using any pesticides and all our wines are certified by Ecocert SAS.

The vines have been sod permanently to improve the soil structure. This permanent cover is worked every year in his totality or every two row to release organic matter stocked on surface and to mineralize the plants. We also put in place regular vegetative cover with green manure. Those contributions present relevant interest for the soil and the vines: soil structure, plant mineralization, organic matter...

During the harvest, the grapes are handpicked to ensure good maturation and perfect grape quality. Through our handpickers, we are able to select the best grapes, preserve the oxydation, limits the risk of deviance and maintain the relation between the humans and the vines.
