In 1998 we converted to organic methods out of a desire for durable winegrowing, a respect for “terroir” and in response to the vision we have for AOC wines. Over a three-year period, a number of techniques that we had already begun to use were extended across the whole estate. These included working the soil, choosing natural products for protecting the vines and using organic compost to put life back into the soil. At the end of this conversion period, our wines were certified from the 2002 harvest as being the product of working methods that complied with the main principles of organic farming, i.e. no GMO, no phytosanitary products, no chemical fertilisers and no weed-killers. Château de PASAVANT was built by Foulques Nerra in the 12th Century, on a site that has long been fortified, overlooking the River Layon, whose slopes are well known for their great wines. – Description from Dragac
