High Environmental Value
As you know, I have constantly endeavoured to farm my vines and producequality wines with an environmental footprint that is as positive as possible.
To achieve this, I have introduced and long experimented with clean and rational winemaking techniques.
It seemed obvious to me that HVE 3 certification (High Environmental Value), the highest and most demanding endorsement for agricultural ecology, could recognise and formalise my commitment.
A recent audit showed that TERRES FALMET easily meets all the criteria for certification and is therefore now officially certified ‘High Environmental Value Level 3’.
It recognises the ethical environmental practices I have been using for many years: minimal use of treatments and fertilisers; conservation of water resources; and development of habitats for wildlife for instance.
The certification also confirms the extremely high level of biodiversity in my vineyard, including grass cover, scrubland, hedges and insects.
