High Environmental Value 3
Certification

The Larraqué Vins International group chose this certification for more than 1000 hectares of vines because it facilitates a global approach to vine-growing and testifies to environmental excellence.

High Environmental Value translates into an obligation for results in 4 domains:

  • Biodiversité
    By stimulating biodiversity and activating the microbial life of the soil.
  • Phytosanitary strategy
    By limiting input products, cutting back on chemicals and promoting natural treatments for vines.
  • Management of fertilisation
    By reinforcing vineyards naturally and exploiting the resources of a healthy soil.
  • Water resources
    By recycling sewage water and managing water consumption.

Our HEV 3 certified wines :
Haussmann Baron Eugène, Cap Nature, Cabane du Pyla,
Château Vernous and Château Le Virou.

Organic agriculture

Larraqué Vins International remains true to its convictions by also implementing Organic agriculture, a system of production that respects the biosphere and natural cycles.

Organic agriculture promotes preventive measures and physical processes while deliberately restricting the use of input products, like sulphites for example.

Lune de Miel

Our association with Lune de Miel enables us to diversify our environmental actions.
We work together to introduce bee hives at Château Le Virou and Château Barre Gentillot, two Vignobles Pierre Jean Larraqué estates.
This action goes hand in hand with the introduction of specific flora to promote the survival of the bees.

Juveniles eels

Juvenile eels are a species of eel that is in danger of extinction. La Souloire is a watercourse that flows into the Dordogne and then into the Atlantic Ocean, providing ideal conditions for juvenile eels.

As this watercourse flows through Château Barre Gentillot, we have committed to restoring our wash house in order to facilitate their passage. Restoration will be complete in 2020.
