The Huet domain has been practicing the bio-dynamic method since 1990.
The soil is mechanically worked in accordance with traditional methods. It plows to cover the vines after the harvest. In the spring, he removes the soil from the foot of the vines. Then periodically, it removes the grass as it grows, thanks to the passage of mechanical tools. This mechanical treatment is essential, they have never used chemical weedkillers on the field in order to preserve the microbial life of the soil. The organic fertilizers brought in small quantities, are produced on the farm from cattle manure, and straw composted for about a year. The treatment products that are used to protect the vineyard are only Bordeaux porridge, powdered sulphur, and herbal preparations (prêle, nettle, millefeuille). They have completely eliminated the use of acaricides, insecticides and all synthetic chemicals since 1988. Thus, they have recreated an ecologically balanced environment where natural predators are again present. The work of the soil and the vines are carried out according to the different rhythms of the planets, as practiced more or less consciously by the winemakers of past centuries. This method of cultivation, which respects the soil, the plant and the environment, allows them to develop the character of their wines and to keep the authenticity of their terroirs.
