Domaines Henri Maire have been implementing the principles of eco-friendly, biological pest control in all our vineyards for many years. This land parcel in Arbois started going over to organic viticulture in 1998. It has now fully implemented this approach, which is inspected and certified by ECOCERT. The Pinot Noir grappe variety chosen for this experiment is one the most demanding, delicate varieties. This provides even more incentive to encourage any natural process promoting the vine's own defence mechanisms.
