At the end of summer, it is with a whole group of people and the assistance of a horse that the people of Les Capriades harvest the parcels, all cultivated according to the principles of a certified organic agriculture.
Vinification and farming take place along the tuffeau-stone hillsides of the region. Bubbles appear and ripen in ideal conditions for ageing, in the appropriate coolness and humidity of the typical cellars of the Cher Valley.
When the weather is mild and lenient, Pascal and Moses produce around 35 000 bottles a year. Each one will be disgorged by hand, in their cellar in Faverolles-sur-Cher. The temporary cap is pulled out, which provokes the rejection of the sediment and a small loss of wine. Wine from another bottle is then used to fill it.
Last step before leaving the wine cellar – a ZORK cork is set upon the neck of the bottle.
