Wine is the result of the interaction between the soil and climate, the vine stock, man, and nature : climate, biodiversity and weather all play a role.
Making wine also needs empirical and technical knowledge.

At the Sève estate, every day counts in creating our wine. All steps are important : from the vine's planting to working the soil, the care taken in pruning, monitoring the vegetative process, the grape harvest, aging in vats or in casks and finally bottling. All of these steps require special technical knowledge and knowhow, which contribute together to the elaboration of our wine.
