Bordeaux Vineam : A Leader in Organic Winegrowing in Aquitaine Region

Must read

Bordeaux Vineam, is a leader of organic winegrowing and owns 6 Châteaux in the Aquitaine region, including five in Bordeaux and one in Bergerac AOC, on more than 240 hectares:
  • CHÂTEAU LA SALAGRE                                                                                                                                                     All of these six properties are in organic viticulture and committed in producing and distributing quality wines throughout the world.

Bordeaux Vineam is a winegrower conscious of the impact of its activity on its partners, the locals, the soil, natural resources and the environment. Since 1999, it has been committed to no longer using synthetic chemicals, herbicides or GMOs. The producer proves to be an enthusiastic pioneer of new technologies allowing a lesser work of the earth and microbiological life is thus protected.

As a Member of the Aquitaine Organic Winegrowers Union, Bordeaux Vineam believes that this means of production is respectful of the human and natural environment, that it enables the maintaining and the bettering of the structure and fertility of the soil, that it promotes biodiversity and contributes to air preservation and water quality. This natural practice – ancestral and preceding the advent of chemical products – coupled with technological innovation, results in the production of wines which reflect their terroir and are identical to those drunk by our ancestors.
