Climate

  • Pruning begins in mid to late October.
  • In early to mid-November, the vines are buried for the winter. In March, the vines are dug up. April: disbudding. Late May, flowering. Mid-July, veraison and early October, harvest.
  • Hand harvesting
  • Transfer to vats for maceration at 20°C
  • Transfer to a stainless steel vat for malolactic fermentation
  • Vieilli pendant 18 mois dans des barriques
  • Spring in Ningxia begins with still cool temperatures and the risk of late frosts, which can threaten young vine shoots. Temperatures gradually rise as the season progresses, favoring vine flowering and the start of vegetative growth. Rainfall is generally moderate during this period, helping to keep the soil hydrated.
  • Summer in Ningxia is characterized by high daytime temperatures, often above 30°C, and plenty of sunshine. Despite the heat, nights remain relatively cool due to the influence of the Gobi Desert, which helps preserve the acidity and freshness of the grapes. Rainfall is scarce during this period, often necessitating irrigation at Vineyards to ensure optimal vine growth and grape ripening.
  • Autumn is the harvest season in Ningxia, when temperatures start to drop but remain pleasant for the final ripening of the grapes. Temperature differences between day and night (thermal amplitude) are significant, favoring the accumulation of sugar and aromas in the grapes. Harvesting generally takes place in a dry, sunny climate, which is favorable to grape quality for red wine production.
  • Winter in Ningxia is cold and dry, with temperatures often below zero. Snow can sometimes cover Vineyards, but winters are generally mild to moderate, allowing vines to survive without significant frost damage. The vines go into dormancy during this season, preparing for the next growing season in spring.
