The organic viticulture

After a few decades serving organic agriculture (since 1970), as we were sliding from market gardening to viticulture, we have never wavered in the validity of this technique.

Acting with responsability as well as passion is a long-term job and the results are up to that expectation. The Clos de la Bonnette was abandoned after the 2nd WW. From the land clearing to replanting, it has always been organic and has never received weedkillers.

Regarding the sanitary conditions are concerned, the vineyard benefits from the excellent wind-chill factor/ventilation of the Rhone Valley, and by the naturel environment of thickets and woods that favours its biological balance. No insecticides on the winery !

The struggle against fungal diseases powdery mildew, mildew involves drastic prophylactic measures : ground work, carefull spreading of leaves, control of vigour. Copper and sulfur, though agreed in organic farming, are only used in low doses and at a last resort.

Organic certification : our winery is audited by AB Certification (Organic Agriculture Certification) and ECOCERT.
