This old grape harvester, redesigned by Jean-Marc and a friend blacksmith, is of precious help in the vineyards.
It covers the rootstocks in autumn and uncovers them in spring, it cuts the herbs growing around the vines and slices the vine roots close to the surface. Thanks to this machine, we do not use any herbicides anymore, reconnecting the vines with their terroir. Without its superficial roots, the plants grow deeper into the ground to search for nutrients, which enhances the influence of the soil on grape composition and taste. Growing in vital, ventilated ground, vines show more resistance to drought and climatic variations.
