We are pleased to announce that the 2022 harvest of Château Gueyrosse and Domaine Chante Alouette Cormeil have just earned their
BEE FRIENDLY Certifications.
Following the 2022 harvest, the BEE FRIENDLY Certification Committee conducted an audit of the farm. The Bee Friendly Labelling
Committee then met to review the audit results, and - based on the on 27 measurable criteria which were met by the farm - validated its
eligibility for the BEE FRIENDLY labels.
Throughout the year, we implemented recommendations and criteria included in the BEE FRIENDLY specifications.
Preserving and sustaining biodiversity involves daily work in the vineyards and entails planting green manure as a source of food and
habitat for pollinators and beneficial insects.
This plant cover also serves as a means of creating a natural fertilizer for the vines, as well as reinforcing and improving the soil quality.
Organic farming is a method of expressing our respect for the environment, fauna and flora.
It will take a little patience, time and work before we can put the BEE FRIENDLY logos on the bottles of our 2022 harvest.
The new vintage will first go through a 12-month maturation in barrels while we verify that their roundness, fruit and elegance are
retained. It will be officially bottled and marketed in 2024.
The answer is Yes.
We have been BEE FRIENDLY since 2019! You can already find the 2019 vintage and the 2020 vintage (bottled this year).
We look forward to your visiting our wine cellars, where we can share with you our vintages and discuss our work in the vineyard and
the wine cellars.
