The team at Domaine Curot cares for vines sustainably, avoiding treatments and adhering to organic practices as much as possible. Beneficial herbs are planted between vine rows to help prevent erosion and contribute needed nutrients to the soils.

Grapes are sorted both in the fields and the cellar, pressed then fermented on selected yeasts in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, and aged on fine lees. The estate follows the lunar calendar to determine optimal times to move or bottle the wines. No sulfur is adding during vinification, and only a very small amount at bottling. Wines are lightly filtered.
