Let us return to the origins of the vines
Going back to the origins of the vines
to reproduce «old-fashioned» vines,
that is, not grafted (or own-rooted),
in a context that is both ecological
and respectful of biodiversity,
to reproduce authentic wines.
Finding biological solutions to Phylloxera
This year 2020, we are launching the associative project : "Les Vieilles Branches" to satisfy our community as a whole.
Our aims are ultimately to:
- Safeguard and reproduce own-rooted vines,
- Have greater biodiversity,
- Decrease the treatments of fragile vines,
- Rediscover genuine wines.
For the benefit of Winemakers, Consumers, our Children and Mother Earth.
Research to return to own-rooted vines in harmony in their ecosystem
- Premature decline of vines,
- Increase in chemical treatments,
- Loss of biodiversity;
- Increased of chemistry in wines,
- Decrease in wine quality.
