    • The Domaine de La Pierre Latine is made up of eight parcels distributed around the edge of the appellation of Yvorne and bounded by the foothills of the Vaud Alps. It is entirely west / southwest facing with steep slopes of up to 35-40%, which allows good natural land drainage

  • The Winery

    • The grapes are picked by hand at peak maturity and carefully sorted in the vineyard. After a light crushing, fermentation in bunches begins naturally with temperatures controlled at 28-29°. Fermentation lasts, on average, 3 to 4 weeks, after which the wine is aged in French oak barrels (50% new) for approximately 12 months. The wine is bottled after a light filtration
