Zull Winery is located in Schrattenthal, Austria's smallest wine-growing town. Zull has over 76,000 vines that produce approximately 70% red wines and 30% white. The dry, hot summer days encourage the vines to set deep roots, while the cold nights give the grapes their distinctive aroma. Each of the Zull vineyards has its own characteristics. The Riesling is cultivated on mineral rock with warming granite below that gives the Riesling its delicate structure. Schrattenthal is also underlaid with well-irrigated sandy soil, which is ideal for red wines. The clay soil of the vineyards in Retz are tailor-made for the aroma of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

GRAND ENCLOS DU CHÂTEAU DE CERONS
Grand Enclos du Château de Cérons is located in Graves, the oldest appellation of Bordeaux, where it is estimated that the first vineyards were planted more than two thousand years ago. Bordeaux Graves vines are protected from the elements by pine forests on one side and cooled by the Garonne river on the other. The "grave" stones of the region absorb the heat of the sun during the day and cool off at night. The unique nature of these stones help the vines ripen steadily and produce an early harvest. The Graves region is known for its white blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes and red blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon varietals. Chateau Lamouroux is the second label of this winery and these wines are produced from the youngest vines, making them more ready to drink.

The vineyards our St. Émilion wine is grown in are in a basement valley and full of old vines.

To maintain maximum wine complexity, Dubois vintners pay close attention to the position of the moon in order to choose the day of bottling.
