Since 2018, Samuel Delafont has decided to stop working the soil and to compose with natural grassing. Indeed, he believes that the first level of biodiversity is first composed by a living soil, rich in fungi, bacteria and mycorrhizae, whose soil work even lightly exposes to the UV of the sun these elements that are then partly burned. By also reinforcing the presence of trees and Mediterranean plants participating in the balance of the ecosystem, we are experimenting with a vineyard management without any input (neither organic fertilizer, nor Bordeaux mixture, nor any phyto).
In order to go further in this approach, Samuel plans to set up an experimental vineyard on the parcels of land surrounding the winery between 2022 and 2024. A tour of this vineyard will illustrate different experiments that will be educational, fun and aesthetic.
