The grapes are harvested when just ripe, destemmed, crushed and fermented for 6 to 12 days at a temperature kept within 32°C and pressed gently. One part of the wine is matured in oak barrels for about 6 months.
Following his artistic and entrepreneurial spirit, in 1984 Joseph Helfrich designed a bottle with a revolutionary shape. He named it Joséphine. It stood out from the crowd with its original curves, slanted neck and generous body. It represented a genuine challenge at the time as a special bottling chain needed to be built for it. The first brand of French wine was born and its name was JP Chenet.
