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 grapes are picked by hand at peak maturity and carefully sorted in the vineyard. After destemming and direct pressing, the must is allowed to settle before and, only if necessary, receive a light chaptalisation. Fermentation begins spontaneously on the lees in stainless steel tanks, lasting between two and six weeks (19-22°C). The wine is aged until the following spring. There is no colour adjustment.
