Although an international issue, sustainable development is also a local challenge to which we devote multiple collective efforts on a daily basis. These efforts are ubiquitous throughout our co-operative system and are constantly evolving.
As a collective, Rhonéa is certified, complies with standards and belongs to advocacy groups (Winegrowers in Sustainable Development, Organic Farming, Demeter, Vegan, HVE – High Environmental Value), attesting to its ethical, fair and transparent conduct. Its uncompromising CSR policy is constantly being reviewed.
Sustainability implies sustainable farming methods and high environmental value. Rhonéa’s environmental efforts translate to widespread, practical actions guaranteeing sound, natural wines for the consumer.
Our family farms keep interventions in the vineyard to an absolute minimum and focus on biodiversity and a landscape charter. We prioritise the preservation of resources and natural landscape components (hedges, copses…); minimal use of inputs; systematic analysis of our wines in external laboratories; implementation of a system to manage wine effluents; optimisation of spraying and fertilisation; a cap on yields; maintaining a healthy vineyard; and technical support paving the way for a higher level still of sustainability.
