Today is the World Environment Day. Preserving the environment is one of Gérard Bertrand’s main preoccupation. Indeed, the biodynamic agriculture allows a respect of the living and the terroir, and to reinforce the soil life and the plants health. It aims to cure the soils weakened and the earth damaged by the massive use of chemical products in agriculture for decades.
Gérard Bertrand nurtures the soil and the vines in their natural environment using preparations of plant, animal and mineral origin (cow horns, herb, quartz etc.). The preparations are made with dynamized water and applied at specific times in accordance with the astronomic cycle (moon, sun and planets).
12 out of our 14 properties are cultivated under the certification DEMETER. Gérard Bertrand plans to generalize the biodynamic methods out within all its vineyards. Today, all the estates are in conversion into a certified biodynamic agriculture.
