Check out the photos of Verger Saint Rock High Environmental Value (HEV) grapes
For 18 months, Les Vergers Saint Rock have committed to following a voluntary HVE (High Environmental Value) certification process. The vineyard covers 45 ha and is surrounded by 40 ha of woods, which is a tremendous vector of biodiversity. The vine stock is also protected by large nets which, together with destructive confusion techniques, reduce the use of pesticides to 75%.
HEV certification (High Environmental Value)
To obtain HEV certification, producers must commit to achieving a set of results that are measured by environmental performance indicators in terms of:
- Biodiversity protection,
- An optimized phytosanitary strategy,
- Rational fertilization management,
- Rational water-resources management.
Delivered by a Ministry of Agriculture-approved certification body, the HVE stamp guarantees that Muscat grapes come from farms that are engaged in the highest level of environmental certification.
