Vine nursery Lilian Bérillon in Jonquières, Vaucluse, has announced the acquisition of an 80 ha property to establish its future nurseries. The objective is to be totally self-sufficient in the raw materials needed to produce rooted grafts.

The investment includes 80 hectares of land and a 2,000 m2 building. The property is located on an island, in Villeneuve-lès-Avignon, on the opposite side of the Rhone to its existing facilities.

The land, which has never been planted to vines, will be used “starting next year” to establish its rootstock plots and a conservation centre for field selection vines “that are extremely diverse and in outstanding health”.

The 16th century residence will house the workshops needed to create the plants, including an area set aside for cleft grafting.

The nursery aims to be able to produce all its raw material requirements (grafts and rootstocks) in order to be totally self-sufficient.
