NATURAL PHILOSOPHY

In order to maintain ecosystem processes and protect our health and yours, our wines are produced through agroecological methods from the start.

We selected “NATURE ET PROGRÈS” label and were certified by it in 2011, which enables us to offer you an honest and consistent organic approach with reference to both the vineyards and winery. 

We exclude pesticides and herbicides, and more generally all synthetic products or GMOs.

Our goal is to preserve and promote existing natural balance, biodiversity in our countrysides and, finally, maintain and improve soil fertility from a more general perspective on sustainable development.

We therefore favour local grape varieties (Carignans, Grenaches, Maccabeu) using mainly massal selections.

Because “wine is first made from the grapevine”, we use traditional vinification methods without technology.

Our wines are made by spontaneous fermentation using indigenous yeast flora which naturally grows in the environment. No chemical or physical amelioration to wine during winemaking process. No addition of animal/vegetal fining agent, and/or no sterile filtration. Use of sulphites is extremely limited, or even prohibited.
