Domaine des Berioles - La Chabanne
Wine Making: Since taking on his parents’ vineyards, Jean has focused on improving the domain's viticultural practices. He started by regularly ploughing the soils, and he is now slowly converting to organic viticulture, with certification expected for 2019. Moving forward, he also participates in biodynamic training sessions with the Massons and has already incorporated biodynamic infusions of rhubarb, meadowsweet, horsetail, and comfrey into his viticultural methods to reduce the need for copper treatments.
