RESPECT FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

Silvio Denz and director Alain Dourthe are determined to follow an eco-logic of respect for the environment for all the vineyards. Their aim is continuous improvement of the ecological balance of their vineyards.

An environmental management policy was introduced in 1997 in the vineyards of Château Péby Faugères, Château Faugères and Château Cap de Faugères. It was subsequently extended to the new estate of Vignobles Silvio Denz, Château Rocheyron, which benefit from the same advanced environmental practices.

RESPECT FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

Silvio Denz then decided to go a step further. He applied for ISO 14001 certification for this environmental management system. In 2009, the three vineyards of Château Péby Faugères, Château Faugères and Château Cap de Faugères were the first to be awarded Ecopass 2000 certification. This system is applied to all the activities of the three member-vineyards of Vignobles Silvio DENZ: uprooting and planting the vines, tending the vineyard, fertilising, phytosanitary and leaf treatments, vinification and maturation, bottling, maintenance of equipment and green spaces and administration. The same practices are applied at Château Rocheyron.

A carbon footprint is likewise calculated every five years by the ADEME method of the French Environment and Energy Management Agency.
