VINEYARDS AND WINERY
Organic viticulture demands precision and consistency. At La Commanderie de la Bargemone we monitor our processes closely all year round, both in the vineyard and the winery. Our grapes are harvested at night to preserve freshness.
The grapes are cooled again, and pressed. The musts are then vatted and cold-soaked for two weeks at temperatures of 2°C, before commencing fermentation at 16°C. Each variety is vinified separately. Wines are blended in December and bottled early the following year.

Vermentino adds gleaming colour and gives the wines an appealing touch of citrus, while Sauvignon Blanc gives freshness and flavours of tropical fruit and white peach.
Cuvée Commanderie de la Bargemone is a blend of our top cuvées, selected after vinification to give a wine with good aromatic complexity and plenty of finesse.
