HVE Certification - Level 3
The Domaine de La Bougrie is committed to viticulture that respects nature and its biodiversity. In 2020, obtaining the Level 3 High Environmental Value label corresponds to the highest level in terms of certification.
This approach is based on 4 performance indicators:
- the preservation of the biodiversity of the vineyard; presence of hedges, grass strips, trees, flowers, insects ... and the pressure of agricultural practices on the environment reduced to a minimum (air, climate, water, soil, biodiversity, landscapes).
- management of the phytosanitary strategy (traceability, dose control, treatment if necessary)
- the management of fertilization and fertilizers (glyphosate suppression by grassing in the vine rows, addition of manure)
- management of water resources (respect for groundwater, recovery of unsuitable water according to the latest standards)
