The brand “Terres d’Ardèche” is a varietal selection on a vineyard covering 487 ha. Wines express themselves each terroir’s identity. On each of its labels, the Terres d’Ardèche selection emphasizes the diversity of the flora within the Ardèche region. Its different colors represent various earthy shades, evoking the area’s mosaic of terroirs. Les Vignerons Ardéchois carefully produce wines from A to Z. Everything starts with a selection of the best parcels for the production of each grape variety taking into account the soil, exposition and form of trellising. The growers also undertake to respect specific production criteria: control of yields, varying from 20 to 50 hl/ha according to the variety, sustainable production, ploughing, pruning, trellising, leaf cutting, thinning, checks of berries at maturity and long maturation on the lees and in oak.
