Vivelys performs independently an important part of its experimental activity in its own facility situated in Montpellier, in the INRA of the Domaine du Chapitre.
Vivelys’ experimental activities also take place in wineries that are its partners, called “caves pilotes”, situated in France as well as abroad (Argentina, Chile, New Zealand, South Africa etc.).
The role of these “caves pilotes” in the wine regions or countries where they are present is to develop an experimental tool to explore new production concepts or tools adapted to the local limitations (raw materials, conditions of production, product definition, etc…). Vivelys’ target is to produce throughout these facilities down-to-earth technical references in a 1 to 3 years time period.
