We make our wine in a 250m² tank room equipped with a very modern system. The wines are then stored in 300m² of cellars.
The wines a produced from start to finish at Valcolombe, from pressing to bottling. Nothing but premium wines: no plastic jerry cans, no bag-in-box and no bulk sales.
We vinify by gravity flow in 16 stainless steel 3- to 70-hectolitre tanks with a temperature control system in their double walls. Each variety is vinified in its own way, separately.
We practice natural fermentation, with total temperature control to preserve the characteristic fruit, flower and spice aromas of our grape varieties. Valcolombe is one of the few estates that bottles its wines on-site.
We buy our maturing barrels from the Seguin Moreau cooperage in Cognac, often called the Rolls Royce of cooperages; we prefer mature oak from Tronçais forest and Missouri.
Feel free to come and visit the winery at Bastide de Valcolombe, you'll be most welcome!
