Extract from the vineyard

Follow the life of a vintage here


🌲 ✨ Let the festivities begin! 

It's my favourite time of year, the time when we get together as a family for Christmas, when the eyes of young and old sparkle.

Thank you for always trusting us and for being able to accompany you during your beautiful and good meals.

From Saturday onwards, you will find on our E-shop our beautiful Christmas boxes to offer yourself some Château ARBO under the tree.

On the vine, the last leaves fall and make way for the branches. Our vine starts its dormancy until spring. Pruning can therefore begin in February and continue in March. "Pruning early, pruning late, there's nothing like pruning in March" said the old-timers. 

On the cellar side, a bottling is planned for the beginning of December for our collaborator in ASIA, enough to turn the cellar upside down for the duration of a bottling! But what wonderful news to be able to be present at the other end of the world! In Vietnam for this first container!

We wish you a lot of sweetness and Magic... ✨


On the vine side, it is the beauty of the autumn landscapes that we love so much. The change of colour and the gentle season, Sundays by the fire, family walks in the forest to pick mushrooms, aperitifs accompanied by our new vintage - finally!
And then, slowly getting closer to the magic of Christmas...

Soil work will precede the January pruning in our vineyards. This will aerate and decompact the soil.

Coté Chai, these lovely projects, preparing bottlings for a new partner on the other side of the world... Which we can't wait to tell you about ✨.
The vats of the 2020 vintage will be decanted so that we can press our marc and launch our malolactic fermentation. You know, the ones that naturally de-acidify the wine thanks to the action of small bacteria.

And also a nice collaboration that we have been working on in secret for a few weeks.


It's the height of the harvest boom with the shuddering of the machines that we hear in the distance...

Here on the vineyard side, our 11 plots are harvested, so they will finally be able to rest, little by little like many others in autumn lose their leaves. 🍂

In the cellar, it's euphoria, there are grapes, fingers sticking, grape juice being tasted, movement, smells, noises of pumps and fermenting vats.


This month so much awaited... the one which is on the side of the vines announcing the grape harvest. 

It's back to school, new teachers, brand new notebooks ready to be scribbled in, a cellar waiting to be renovated, a new vintage soon in bottle...

As you can see, it's back to work for all of us... we wish you a great start to the new year.

In the cellar, it is the swarming and the excitement with the preparation of our tanks to welcome this new harvest! As well as our new building which is being finished to finally bring us an optimized work tool.


As for the vines, with the heat of the last few days, they are protecting themselves and are under water stress. Because they are cruelly lacking water. The harvest advance of more or less 15 days which had been taken in spring is then stopped and caught up little by little. 

On the cellar side, the cellar will wake up little by little to prepare for the harvest, cleaning and disinfection of the tanks, pipes and pumps will be part of the process.


Enjoy the beautiful days of July that are coming up, as well as receiving you in our winery.
Thank you for visiting us in ever greater numbers.
On the vine, it is growing at breakneck speed, the rows are taking shape under the knives of the trimming machine and the grapes are growing, swelling and soon will change colour.

Coté Maison Arbo, the shop and the house are being renovated to welcome you in a beautiful setting. A beautiful adventure that continues and is gradually taking shape...


As for the vines, it's more than ever the big upheaval! They are growing at full speed, between trimming, lifting and topping they must also maintain the rows of vines and under the feet ... so naturally that even on weekends and with a little Louis on his knees that work is done without delay.

In order to avoid any breakage of our branches during the passage of the tractors or the strong bad weather which threatens at the moment.

On the cellar side, it's time to let your palate guide you, to taste and rediscover our vintages... to open the cellar door and let you discover our daily life in the middle of our vines.


This month is so tender, with a glimpse of beautiful days, pretty flowers and walks in the fresh air.

On the vines, the tender buds have given way to beautiful stems and leaves of a soft and deep green.

On the cellar side, it's time to let your palate guide you, to taste and rediscover our vintages... to open the cellar door and let you discover our daily life in the middle of our vines.


A new month that must give way to a new season... well, we hope ❄️

As for the vines, the temperatures are falling and the first buds have barely begun to come out on our terroirs.
Fortunately only a few of them have shown up. This cold weather will allow the vine and its buds to stay a little warmer, a little longer... time we hope that these winter periods will give way to spring.

On the cellar side, the 2021 vintage is in its new barrels and the cellar and shop are starting to take shape! We are very happy to welcome you there.


This month of March, it is already the promise of renewal...

On the vine side, life is slowly resuming and the pruning cuts let appear some tears, symbol of rebirth and of a new cycle.
Spring is approaching fast. But not too fast, because we are always afraid that the nice days will come back too soon and the spring frosts will set in...

On the cellar side, the barrels see new visitors. The end of winter brings us some curious people... The cellar is also a lot of conviviality, the joy of receiving and sharing.


While winter sometimes seems to freeze time, life goes on in the Château Arbo.

On the vineyard side, our men are busy in the vineyard. After the pruning and the pulling of the wood, the secateurs are silent to give the vine a little more time before it wakes up.

In the cellar, like the hands of a clock, the days are marked by the rolling of the barrels. The 2021 vintage leaves its bed to make way for the next vintage.


The mildness of this new year would almost make us forget that it is only the beginning of winter...

As for the vines, the weather is slowing down. The dormancy is well installed and our vines are now all naked. We will bring them a scarf if it is too cold...

In the cellar, the excitement is rising... The 2020 vintage has just been dressed. You can now discover this new vintage on our website or come and visit us in our store.
