VINEYARD

RdV enjoys two essential elements of great terroir.

Thin, gravelly, granite soils force the vines to stop vegetative growth during the latter part of the growing season and channel energy into the reproductive system, thus ensuring the small, concentrated berries and ripe seeds that yield wine with ample supple tannins.

Secondly, the fruit slowly reaches full ripeness in the cool Autumn days of early October - conditions ideal for wines with complexity and finesse.

With 6.5 hectares under vine, the vineyard is divided into eleven parcels and planted to Cabernet Sauvignon (40%), Merlot (40%), Petit Verdot (12%) and Cabernet Franc (8%).
