Some important information ...
The Hérault, place of residence of this vineyard, experiences very sunny days, but it is also subject to drought, floods, summer storms and storms, hail, as sometimes, snow. These weather conditions make these vines, strong and exceptional vines, bringing finesse and flavors to our wines.
Planted on a land of rolled pebbles in the Villefranchian area (1) , the vineyards of the Campagne St-Martin are highly mineralized.
They only feed on their soil, supplemented by the addition of local organic fertilizers or an organic amendment, so as not to exhaust and deplete the soil.
The sanitary maintenance of the vine is reasoned, the treatments used are based on copper and sulfur as fungicide.
It should be noted that there is no use of pesticides thanks to a method used in cooperation with our wine-growing neighbors: sexual confusion (2) .
The transition to organic farming in 2021 will allow us to eliminate weed killers and therefore produce a new "clean" Cuvée 100% natural.
Over the years, resistant vines have grown more and more, in order to preserve a logical continuity of our values!
As a reminder: The Campagne Saint-Martin is a family winery that wants to be human . Each step forward, in viticulture which is more and more in harmony with its environment, is a great step difficult to take. The risks are as exponential as the advance in organic farming . Every day, we put all our energy into exercising our passion based on our principles and in total harmony with nature .
(1) Villafranchiens : This formation corresponds, on the right bank of the Hérault, to the oldest alluvial fluviatiles of which there remain only shreds of terrace dissected by erosion and staged between 90 and 60 meters above the current course . South of the Tongue located above the marl at Potamides basteroti , it forms an immense glacis which corresponds to the end of the backfilling started in the Pliocene. These alluviums consist mainly of siliceous pebbles, very rounded: abundant white quartz, quartzites, quartz shales and rare Lydian; they are devoid of basaltic pebbles. These pebbles are associated with gravels and clayey-sandy, reddish silts and bear witness to an essentially Cévennes origin.
This fluvial formation which covers the gullied surface of the Miocene plateaus and follows the pliocene filling and prior to the basalt flow., It is very clearly separated from the other allusions and is located very west of the current course of the Hérault its thickness is large, about 8 to 12 meters. It was found south of Montblanc at the Château de Coussergues seaweed sheet in brackets in the tools consolidate notebook, a jaw with molars, attributed by Ch., To Mastodon arvernensis which allows by extinction to fix the age of the whole set of tools for the trays (source).
(2) Sexual Confusion : This involves breaking the reproductive cycles of pests, such as the grapevine, and maintaining the balance between parasite populations and their predators. Several control techniques are appearing, other than traditional insecticides, in order not to pollute the environment and introduce a risk for the winegrower. One of these methods is sexual confusion , saturating the atmosphere with pheromones capable of causing confusion for insects and thus limiting mating.
(2) La Confusion sexuelle : Il s'agit de rompre les cycles de reproduction des ravageurs, tel que l'eudémis de la vigne, et de maintenir l'équilibre entre les populations parasites et leurs prédateurs. Plusieurs techniques de lutte apparaissent autres que les insecticides traditionnels, pour ne pas polluer l'environnement et ni introduire un risque pour le viticulteur. L'une de ces méthodes est la confusion sexuelle, saturant l'atmosphère en phéromones propres à introduire une confusion pour les insectes et à limiter ainsi les accouplements.
