Château Gueyrosse and Domaine Chante Alouette Cormeil are BEE FRIENDLY certified

     This certification reflects our commitment to the protection of bees and pollinators.


Organic Certification:

     Our vineyards are also certified as Agriculture Biologique (organic agriculture).

     Our official engagement in organic farming dates back to 2018, following a 3-year conversion process.

This label focuses on safeguarding bees and pollinators.


     Our vineyard management includes an autumn green cover crop composed of vetch, oats, and crimson clover.

This not only provides natural fertilization but also serves as a habitat and food source for pollinators and beneficial insects.

We are pleased to announce that the 2023 harvest of Château Gueyrosse and Domaine Chante Alouette Cormeil have just earned their

BEE FRIENDLY Certifications.


  • How does it work?

Following the 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.


  • How did we prepare the land?

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.


  • When will the Bee be on the bottle?

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. 


  • Are there any Bee Friendly certified vintages already on the market?

The answer is Yes.

We have been BEE FRIENDLY since 2019! You can already find the 2019 vintage and the 2020 vintage.


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.

How do we take care of our vines and soil?

Organic Farming
and Bee Friendly

  • We plough the soils.
  • Harvest by hand.
  • No herbicides, no pesticides.
  • Our vineyards are in the process of organic farming since April, 2018.

The 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023 vintages are a certified “BEE FRIENDLY

label, which aims to identify and promote pollinator-friendly products.

Our process of converting to organic farming is consistent with the BEE FRIENDLY


Our close contact with the Libourne Apiary School Association enables us to

identify the trees, plants and flowers in our garden which qualify as pollinators and

are labeled accordingly.
