Grown in steep terraces on gravel and shale soil, the vineyard enjoys plenty of sunshine and excellent natural drainage of the land. The heat of the mountain, the foehn and breezes caress the vineyards to the ideal ripeness, thus allowing a later harvest.

After the Pinot Noir harvest, the grapes are de-stalked and then undergo a long process of maceration during which fermentation takes place. This lasts 4-5 weeks and allows the extraction of colour and tannins, two fundamental elements for the balance of red wines. In addition, during this period ' The Red Lizard ' has a slight maceration for a few hours on the lees of Garanoir.
