The terroirs

The vines in France are planted on soils of very different nature from one point to another in France.

These differences in terroirs highlight the influence of the composition of the soil on the grape variety, the rootstock, the maturation and quality of the grapes harvested, and ultimately on the properties of the wines obtained.

The vine is satisfied with poor soils, sometimes even arid, because the root system of the plant can dive up to ten meters in search of water. The roots take care of the trace elements contained in the subsoil. The favorable terroirs are numerous and variable according to the grape varieties.

Les Vignerons du Castelas vineyard includes three distinct types of terroirs.
