The "Organic Agriculture" label

What ?

Organic farming consists in resorting to cultivation practices concerned with respecting natural balances. It excludes the use of synthetic chemicals and limits inputs.

The products mainly used are copper and sulfur, associated with mechanical tillage or grassing.

Many of the winegrowers in our cooperative who are not certified organic have similar practices in their cultivation routes, proof of their desire to always improve!

It helps to preserve biodiversity, soil, air and water quality.

In organic production, we can experiment with innovative practices likely to be more widely developed in agriculture. These processing methods favor the enhancement of the natural characteristics of the products.
