There was a time when traditional weed control in vineyards involved ploughing the soil relentlessly to dust. In the late ‘70s, Richard Morton decided that this didn’t make any sense and stopped. Today the rows have a wonderful grassy swath and the extra organic matter and cooling effect on the vineyard helps our Grenache thrive. If you listen carefully, the ploughs can be heard peacefully rusting away on a quiet day, perhaps in reverence to this fantastic wine.
