The story
Coming from selected terroirs, our organic wines are subject to the rigorous know-how of the Rhonéa craftsmen and winegrowers. Our commitment to the environment is certified by the organic farming label and is also shown by a global environmental approach through a policy of sustainable development such as the preservation of biodiversity in the vineyard, the protection of natural resources, eco-design packaging, or the protection of local heritage.
Location
With a view to more modern wines that are more respectful of nature, we have chosen to follow an eco-design approach for our products, in particular thanks to lighter bottles made up of 80% recycled glass, eco-friendly cartons -designed and 100% natural, labels labeled imprim'vert as well as "SmartGreen" caps 100% biobased, recyclable and renewable.
Terroir
The vineyards of Visan are buffeted by the Mistral wind and bask in sunshine, both of which are conducive to producing a wide range of fruity and tannic wines. The pebble-strewn, clay-limestone hillside sites face due South and imbue this wine with a powerful aromatic profile. Grown mainly on slopes, the vines are tented with the greatest of respectfor the environment by our artisan winegrowers.
In the vineyard
Rich in our commitment and know-how in organic farming for more than 15 years, our winegrowers offer you a selection of terroirs respecting both the typicity of the soils and their biodiversity.
Vinification
The vines are treated exclusively with natural plant protection products. This organic approach results in tasty grapes that are in excellent condition. These are tasted every day as vintage time nears to appraise their readiness, and picked when perfectly ripe to reflect their terroir. The wines are evaluated daily by our oenologist during fermentation. Pumping over and temperature are adjusted accordingly.
Ageing
The wine is patiently aged for several months to bring out its intrinsic intensity.
