Wine vats room at Château Livran

Innovative techniques for responsible creation

For the major part, vinification is done in concrete tanks, with a few made in stainless steel. The methods are still traditional. The new chai (wine cellar), sober and aesthetic, in both its aspect and its operation, was finished in time the 2016 wine harvest.

Respectful of natural and human resources, it takes advantage of the assets of the domain with a natural regulation of the temperature (clay-based wall isolation, Canadian well heating system) and an optimization of water resources, allowing each plot to be worked on individually, in more serene conditions and with an increased efficiency. The wastewater produced (from vine-working and phytosanitation) now benefits from a new treatment process that is both natural and practical: nothing goes to waste in nature and it creates healthy compost.
