Organic grapes and organic wines: more nature in your glass?

The Excell laboratory has awarded us with their "+nature -pesticides©" certificate and logo.This analysis shows that our grapes are organic and certifies that our wine contains no pesticides, so more nature in your glass!

We have implemented organic methods since the beginning and have undergone the certification process with our second harvest in 2009. Our grapes should be "labelled organic" in 2012 after a three year survey and monitoring programme. We chose organic methods to maintain and protect our healthy soil and vines, but what about our wine? We aim to produce a wine as natural as possible so we submitted our 2010 vintage for analysis by the laboratory Excell in Merignac/Bordeaux.
