Culture & sustainable development
The work accomplished in the vineyard has always been considered here to be essential. To start with, the age of the vines, one third of which are easily over 50 years old. All the necessary manual tasks – restrictive pruning, crown suckering, topping, removal of leaves from the heart of the shoot, crop thinning, removal of leaves on the east side and then on the west side – are performed to ensure that the grapes produced are the healthiest, purest and most characteristic of their variety.
Also, Château Moulin Haut-Laroque has been involved into the Environmental Management System (SME) of the Conseil Interprofessionnel du Vin de Bordeaux (CIVB) for few years. The main goal is to act on a daily basis as if we were an industrial company rather than a standard farm… That means that we do all the needed efforts to assess & control the environmental and humain impacts of our work in order to lower any risk.
