Chateau Séraphine - A family affair

We do not work to a set timetable, preferring to adapt our viticultural practices to suit the health and maturity of the vineyards. We do this by carefully observing any small seasonal developments or changes to the climate and then employing our best efforts to meet the requirements of the current growing year.

We also farm our precious vines in a sustainable way, acknowledging both good practice and common sense and by using only products and techniques that safeguard the environment and nature. Our soil works are done by horse, whilst the canopy management, de-budding, crop thinning and de-leafing are all meticulously carried out by hand to protect and maintain the correct yields and enhance quality.

Harvest is conducted according to the precision of our analysis, the ripeness of the fruit and the experience of our team, which means that we may pass through an individual parcel two or even three times over several days in the pursuit of excellence. After all, Chateau Séraphine is a family affair, but one with a long association with the land, and as such, we greatly respect the history and tradition of these ancient soils and the people that have worked here over the long years.
