Terra Vitis, taste with your eyes closed
Created in the Beaujolais region in 1998 by vinegrower winemakers who were determined to highlight their vinegrowing techniques, their experience and their commitment to respect for the environment, Terra Vitis has become the national emblem of eco-friendly viticultural production. The initiative that was started up in the Beaujolais region was given shape in November 2001 with the creation of the National Terra Vitis Federation. Today it has 410 member estates covering a total of over 13000 hectares and a production in 2007 of more than 420000 hectolitres of wine.
Backed by the "Comité de Développement du Beaujolais" for logistics, Terra Vitis is upheld in Beaujolais by l'Association de Conduite Raisonnée Rhône-Alpes, and sets out a very strict set of requirements to be a member. Terra Vitis, is vinegrowing that respects the environment, based on the well-thought-out use of plant health products and full "tracability" of the resulting wine. So you can savour the wines with your eyes closed!
