Our winemaker philosophy
In 2016 we obtained the classification HVE
This certification means that we put the accent on producing using bio-diverse methods that involve preserving the natural state of the areas whether at the heart of the vineyards or at their extremities. We are obliged to respect the ecosystem and control the water usage.
Our classification is HVE level 3 - the highest level. This involves the use of «zero-pesticides», «zero chemical insecticide», «zero herbicide» and mechanical work of ground.
Recently we have put boxes in place that encourage the reproduction of insects that are favourable for wine growing. We also install bird and bat houses to encourage avian reproduction, in parallel to wine growing, to limit the insects that might be counter-productive to the health of the vines.
