Pascalis de la Chaup vineyard is committed to restoring and developing biodiversity
We have chosen to abandon the monoculture and bring diversity to promote the development of a balanced fauna and flora and offer a diverse landscape. The vineyard includes a natural meadow to shelter insects, hedges of hornbeams and cypress to protect winds, an orchard composed of peach, apricot, plum and cherry, as it was the case at the beginning of the 20th century, aromatic plants promoting pollination and stimulating the immune defenses of the vine: lavender, rosemary, thyme, savory, sage, oregano, immortals and curries
Some stone walls have been erected on the Montgenas hill that we restore and support the various spaces. This varied environment, in addition to the pleasure it brings, contributes to developing biodiversity, restoring soil fertility and guaranteeing quality and quantity of water.
A century-old vineyard certified High Environmental Value (HVE3) in 2019
It is of course that we have committed ourselves to a High Environmental Value Certification Level 3 (HVE) which we will benefit in 2019. We thus limit the inputs and encourage biodiversity: development of small hedges, inter-rangeland weeds, specific diversity and varietal vines. To preserve microorganisms and soil life, we promote its aeration, its physical structure and the preservation of water through surface plowing.
