This is where the wine-production starts – vineyards. Here, we grow grapes, which are further used for the production of cognac raw materials. The grape-growing process is a rather laborious procedure. Here, the works are carried out all the year round– in winter we perform the cutting of vine, in spring – the green management, including dry tying-down, suckling, green tying, topping, nipping, and, naturally, cleaning-up. The drip irrigation system is installed across the territory of vineyards. It operates as follows: small portions of water are supplied directly to vine roots, thus watering not ground, but the vine itself.
