The 90 hectares (225 acres) of Château La Nerthe havebeen Certified Organic by Ecocert since 1998. The terroir is composed of rocky slopes of clay and sand,rising above the Rhône river. While it is difficult to grow vines in such soils, the rocks do help ripen theberries since they store heat during the day and warm the vines at night. They also allow water topenetrate into the soil, reducing stagnation and disease.
