The Vineyard and cellar

The Vineyard

“WE DO NOT INHERIT THE EARTH FROM OUR PARENTS, WE BORROW IT FROM OUR CHILDREN” SAINT EXUPÉRY

The Domain de Font Alba is situated in Provence in the heart of the Luberon regional park between the city of Apt and the village of Rustrel.

AN EXCEPTIONAL TERROIR

The vines are cultivated on hillsides at an altitude between 300 and 400 meters on clay limestone and sandy soils. With a good south-east exposure our vines enjoy an exceptional amount of sunshine with more than 2800 hours of sun per year. It is the interaction between this terroir and this outstanding climate that enables us to create fine and aromatic wines.

VINE CULTIVATION

The vineyard was bought in 2013 by the BURLET family and has been since conducted according to the principles of sustainable farming: mechanical weeding, limited treatments, voluntary limitation of yields, short pruning, de-budding ad green harvesting if necessary. The Domain was certified HVE 3rd level in April 2019.
