The grapes are harvested manually. After alcoholic fermentation in a vat, the wines underwent malolactic fermentation in 275-litre oak Laurus barrels (new barrels from Burgundy and Ile de France regions). Elevage on fine lees over a period of 14 months.

The name « Hermitage » comes from the legend of the Knight of Sterimberg. Returning from a Crusade, he repented for his years of warmongering by becoming a hermit, devoting himself to prayer and growing vines on top of the hills of Tain.
