In 2008, three Breton draft horses arrived at Pontet-Canet in order to work in the vineyard, avoiding compaction of the soils and encouraging the roots to do their work.
Their arrival started a revolution which has required constant effort, teaching us for example how to live side by side with these docile yet powerful animals.
Since then, the number of horses has steadily increased so that more and more parcels of vines can be tended without having to use tractors. Neither a step back in time nor a quest for folklore, it is a real vision of the future which involves adapting the work of the horses to modern times.
It is of course a challenge which brings us closer to nature and allows us to further our policy of respecting the vines and our terroir. The sound of hooves in the courtyard has only just begun.
