Five generations of wine growers have tended 10 hectares of vines - 80% Chardonnay in Villers-Marmery and 20% Pinot Noir in Verzy – with the utmost care and attention.
Several years ago, we adopted sustainable methods and we believe that this eco-friendly approach is key to the high-quality Champagnes we produce today. Our aim is to work in a full organic manner and the first step are the Pinot Noir vineyard of which we have started in 2017 the conversion.
Sadi Malot champagne is certified Level 3 HVE*
and in conversion
to organic viticulture
*Haute Valeur Environnementale
We opted for this voluntary environmental certification as a testament to the pride we take in preserving the ecosystem in our vineyards.
We believe it is vitally important to maintain a natural balance in and around our vineyards.
Since 2005 we have been :
• using cultivation methods which allow the roots of the vines to dig deep into the soil (a layer of top soil, very deep in places, on a limestone base) to capture the very essence of the terroir,
• using precision equipment to treat and work our vines and thereby reduce our use of chemicals,
• prioritising the protection of biodiversity and fertilisation and water management.
And, today, we apply this environmental approach to 100% of our land.
