For the last 8 years, we have planted annually 1000 to 3000 vines. It is finally time to put our shovels away. But a lot of vine caring will be necessary in the coming years while we wait for the vines to produce grapes, and us, more sparkling wine. Indeed, it will not be until 2021 before we taste the first wine made from grapes grown on the vines planted in 2016. Aren’t we happy to have our 2013, 2014 and 2015 vintages to help us wait!
