Vineyard
millerand

High density of planting (8 500 feet/ha). The soils are plowed and the vines are nourished by the previous year's cuttings, by organic compost and by powdered limestone (to neutralize the soil's acidity).
Human intervention comes into play several times during each season for de-budding, trellising, leaf-thinning...
