We are very proud to announce our decision to start our conversion to organic farming. This conversion, which lasts for a period of three years, will begin this year and will be completed in 2024, by which time we aim to have the entirety of our vineyards, both red and white varieties, certified as organically-farmed.
A LONG WORK OF PREPARATION
TO ENABLE US TO SUCCEED IN THIS CONVERSION
For over ten years now, a long and painstaking work has been carried out by our crew and ourselves to improve our vine-growing practices and limit our impact on the environment. Maintaining healthy soil life, performing sound environmental practices and preserving biodiversity have brought us great personal satisfaction and also enabled us to produce wines of freshness and elegance, vintage after vintage. These next few years will be necessary for us to ensure that all our vine plots, both those making up the historic vineyard and our latest acquisitions, will be ready for this phase of conversion.
THE LOGICAL FOLLOW-UP
OF OUR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT POLICY
Now that our vineyard has been completely restructured, we have every confidence in the success of this conversion to organic farming, which will be the next logical step following on from everything that we have undertaken at Château Fleur Cardinale and Château Croix Cardinale in terms of viticultural sustainability.
This new stage will be conducted in parallel with our participation in the French Corporate Social Responsibility programme (RSE), which we committed to in 2020, and also with our reforestation project in partnership with Reforest’Action, and more generally as part of our overall Sustainability policy.
