After 18 months of ageing, we have bottled our Anjou Brissac 2018. Like the new name of the appellation has also benefited from a makeover with a waxed bottle, a new label and a new name: Rouge de schiste. To find out more about this blending cuvée, you will find its technical data sheet by clicking here.
In order to give a new imprint to the domain, we have vinified a new type of wine: a maceration white. Made from old Chardonnay vines, the "Rock & schiste" white 2019 is our grain of madness of the year! If you want to discover more click here You can also come to the cellar to taste it.
Last Friday, the disbudding ended. Since the end of April, a team of 15 seasonal workers, under the expert guidance of Virginie, has been scouring the vines of the Terra Vita Vinum estate to remove unwanted shoots and select the best shoots. The aim of this operation is to regulate yields to produce high quality wines. It was in a good mood that they left around a festive meal. See you next time at the harvest!
In the vines, pruning is finished, the leaves are blooming, the first bunches of grapes appear, the work of the soil and the first biodynamic sprays protect the vine and reactivate the life of the soil. For the first time, Ursule, a draught horse from the Poitevin marsh, came to help the mechanical weeding team in our plot of Rogeries. At the beginning of the week, the first seasonal workers arrived for the green work: several days ahead of schedule, disbudding and picking are on the way. In the...
The confinement continues, but this does not prevent the activity of the estate from continuing both in the vineyard and in the cellar. Our two new cuvées Large soif 2019 (red and white), the domain's new babies, are now available for sale. On the white side : our famous Chauvigné is changing its name, and with good reason : the plot is now planted with red grape varieties ! The greediness is there for a real wine of friends! Red side : this year, we have blended several plots, to give birth t...
The tools of our ancestors are still in use on our plot of land in Savennières. Under the beautiful sunshine of Easter Monday, the pickaxe is active in the rows of vines of La Bigottière.
The risk of frost has passed. Ursule attacks the decavaillage on the Rogeries plot !
The first bottling of the 2019 vintage: Large soif blanc. The Terra Vita Vinum team is in a good mood! More than 16 000 bottles swallowed during the day. It is now necessary to wait until the beginning of April to start the marketing campaign.
The Revue des Vins de France publishes a special report on the Orange Revolution: Why do young and new wine lovers like macerated wines? Terra Vita Vinum has been able to take the measure of this trend. For the 2019 vintage, Terra Vita Vinum is launching its first white wine from maceration in ageing: Rock & Schistes 2019 barely macerated.
On January 21st, Terra Vita Vinum took part in the animation of a "winemaker" dinner at the famous Guinguette d'Issy for which we selected among our wines those that would best match the menu proposed by the chef. Difficult but successful exercise according to the delighted customers of the evening! We took the opportunity to present our range of cuvées at the "Le Chemin des Vignes" cellar of the same group, run very professionally by the Legrand family. <For us, it was a...
