The Shvo vineyard is almost 10 hectares, and currently around 8 of these are in production. The varieties grown include Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Barbera and Mourvèdre. He works sustainably with no herbicides, and uses compost. Altitude here is around 800 metres, which moderates the temperature.
