The Yoyo Estate-
4 hectares spread over 7 plots in the heart of Cru Banyuls. Grenache adolescents, Young frisky Mourvèdres, Grenaches and Carignans centenarians anchored on black shale. 3 hectares on the Piedmont of Albères between sea and mountain.
Organic farming since 2005, certified since 2008 or in the process of certification. No chemicals in the vineyard. Organic and vegetable amendments (oil cakes and fruit pulps, sheep manure, feather powders, etc.).
The Banyuls vineyard cannot be mechanized. Soil work is therefore done by animal traction (plowing on horseback and with the Uma mule), rototiller and pickaxe (xadic).
The plantations are carried out in welded grafts, mass selection on our hundred-year-old vines.
The American plants in place are grafted with the woods of his vine.
Size and work in green according to the good will of the moon.
The harvest is carried out in joy and good humor with small boxes of 13 kg to preserve the intact bunches.
The yields vary according to the grape varieties, the plots and the age of the vines between 10 and 20 hl / ha
