Founded in 2007, Ormiale is situated in the north of the Entre-deux-Mers region, 15 Kilometers south of St. Emilion and 8km from Castillon la Bataille.Our main wine "Ormiale" is vinified and bottled on the property as an appellation Bordeaux – Grand Vin de Bordeaux. The parcels of Demeter certified bio-dynamically grown vines occupy 2 hectares on the Cotes de Castillon and Cotes de Francs, and consist of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The chai is located near the village of Merignas in Entre-deux-Mers.The harvests are hand picked and completely hand de-stemmed since 2010; then manually loaded into a conical, french-oak vat and stainless steel vats. The vat loaded fruit is left to ferment un-sulphited and the fermentation is assisted with natural yeasts. Vinification takes 4-5 weeks depending on the vintage.Our yield is typically around 20-25 hectolitres/hectare. In comparison, the maximum authorised yield for Bordeaux Superieur in 2009 was 59 hl./ha.The maturation of our wines takes place in oak barrels of 225, 500 & 600 litres and in stainless steel vats for a duration of +/- 18 months. The wine is racked 2 or 3 times during this stage.We don't filter our wines or add albumen and rarely use sulphites, except occasionally when necessary, before bottling.All the analysis results of our wine are available on demand and published on the website www.vinsnaturels.fr The stoppers are of Portuguese cork, without any chemical treatment and flame stencilled.Vintages are available for sale between 12 and 18 months after bottling, more than 3 years after their harvest.
