As was common at that time, Jacques Dietrich and his wife had many children. Helped by their daughters and sons, the vineyard and farm grew strongly.
Late 19th and early 20th century, The "Dietrich" cultivated the vineyards for grapes and wine, fields and meadows to feed the family, livestock, pets and carthorses they were very proud of especially their white stallions.
Crops at the beginning of last century were very small. The average yield of the vineyard was around 15 hectoliters per hectare. Nothing was lost in these times of scarcity, even the manure was used as natural fertilizer for the vines.
Furthermore, horses not only allowed them to plow the land and to transport the crop, they allowed to get trees out of forests in the surrounding mountains. This work of unloading very hard which required a lot of attention, strength and perseverance helped them to finance land purchases in the strong development of the family winery.
