Domaine de la Senche believes that “good wine is made in the vineyard.” They pride themselves on the diversity of their different land parcels, which add to the wonderful complexity of the wines they produce.
Domaine de la Senche focuses on organic farming with minimal treatment of the vines, and only use methods approved for organic farming. Soil preparation is performed regularly to avoid the use of herbicides, and organic fertilizers are used rather than chemicals.
Green harvesting is performed to limit yield and increase the quality of the grapes. When the grapes reach an optimum ripeness and sugar level, harvesting is done by hand and the grapes are sorted before further processing. Fermentation is done in temperature controlled stainless-steel tanks, as well as in oak barrels.
From the 3,6 hectares of vines, which are on average 20 years old, Domaine de la Senche produces some 11.000 bottles of wine per year. The grape varieties Syrah, Grenache, and Carignan make up the vineyard’s exquisite red wines.
