Modern, committed and results-oriented, Philippe has been working to develop a circular economy on this unconventional property for many years. The property’s buildings and temperature-controlled tanks are heated from the production of vine shoots. In 2012, the project was awarded a prize from the Foundation for Sustainable Agriculture for the Acquitaine region.
The Château also produces and stores electricity from photovoltaic panels installed on the roof of a semi-buried cellar.
The family cares deeply about recycling, producing compost and working to reduce their carbon footprint by using lighter bottles, fully recyclable packaging, and corks that have not been treated with hydrogen peroxide, as well as optimising pallets for transport. Natural habitats and biodiversity are encouraged through the preservation of woodlands and the natural growth of hedges on the property. These innovative approaches are the result of in-depth work, which is not commercially or ideologically motivated.
