Earth, vines and man form the magic triptych which governs our grape production.
Three components, three entities, three living things. Singly they have no meaning, but all three interact with each other.
This is why Champagne Augustin, in keeping with its philosophy, has implemented wine-producing practices which are environmentally friendly for the vines.
In winter, Marc practises non-traumatic pruning of the vines.
In June, he favours braiding rather than trimming to tame the bushy shoots on the vines which are in their peak growth period.
These decisions involve adapting facilities and are far more time-consuming then conventional cultivation methods. Champagne Augustin is willing to accept the consequences of this choice.
