The farm is family-run, Sabine and Isabelle take care of the wines, without neglecting the expert advice of Etienne and Chantal who created the estate in 1956. The cultivation of the vines is conducted in a reasoned way, with constant concern for the environment. yields are deliberately limited to around 30 hl/hectare; a guarantee of quality. The harvest is done by hand, which allows a rigorous sorting of the grapes from the picking. Vinification is traditional; light pressing, controlled and controlled temperatures throughout fermentation. The reds will spend two winters in tanks before bottling. The wines do not stay in wood, the quality of their terroir gives them a natural woody character. Château Redortier wines are available on the five continents as well as on the best tables.
