Terra Vitis – a living land for the sake of good wine, and a story of vignerons (wine growers).
Terra Vitis, is the signature of French vignerons who respect nature, men and wine. The Latin name, Terra Vitis, expresses the close, inseparable bond between the vine and its terroir. Over 15 years ago, a group of vignerons came together to create Terra Vitis. They were the precursors of “reasoned” or sustainable viticulture, to which they were committed.
The Terra Vitis’ approach is governed by a demanding set of specifications, specific to the wine growing sector. Terra Vitis takes a sustainable or “reasoned” approach to viticulture. Terra Vitis’ members use ecologically-friendly wine growing methods to produce wines with no negative impact on the environment. To achieve this, the vignerons must undertake to do the following:
- Respect the terroir
- Protect the vines and harvesting
- Observe Men
- Innovate and evolve
- Respect society
- Respecting consumer
« I decided to pursue Terra Vitis certification, because this approach allows me to produce quality champagnes while respecting the environment and the terroir. Respecting its methods, I become more and more environmentally-friendly with each passing year and I add value to my terroir through my champagnes.”
