Without the stake driver, one could not achieve these thousands of kilometers of trellising vine, true guardian essential to its good culture.
Just as the vine plunges its roots in the different soil types of the appellation, it also probes the plots and examines its composition and in particular its hardness as on the limestone plateaus of the Grande Champagne. From commune to commune, it knows as nobody the micro-variations of wines, this central element of the expression of soils.
The sinking of stake is one of the examples of the wine services provided by many companies in Charente in their accompaniment of owners of vines vintage after vintage: experts seeking the best expression of grapes whatever the techniques of driving the vineyard, types of varietal,
size or geology.
