Our ethic, this is a concrete action for many years :
■ No application of herbicides since 1998 : it was then the prehistory of mechanical soil tillage… It was difficult but we did it when few winegrowers did not consider it.
■ Applied treatment of wine effluents
■ Phytosanitary products in constant connection with the weather (weather station installed in 2018) and our observation in the vineyard (risk assessment and butterfly counting)
■ Respect of biodiversity. Planting of hedges for the preservation of auxiliary fauna and digging of a pond fed by a source for migrating birds
■ Respect of our landscapes, trees and hillsides
