The history of Dubois winegrowers began in the 15th century with the birth of Emiland Dubois, who was the first ancestor and winegrower to be found in official records. Since then, the number of vines have grown in relation to the increasing operational land. The white grapes are harvested by hand or by machine then placed in young barrels. Red wine grapes are picked mainly by hand. They spend 15 to 18 months in the cellar, with 9 to 13 months in young barrels. To maintain maximum wine complexity, Dubois vintners pay close attention to the position of the moon in order to choose the day of bottling.
