A certified organic procedure

- Committed as soon as1998 inthe procedure of certified organic agriculture, the Château de Passavant moreover got the Demeter biodynamic certification in September 2011. This development, which has been going on for 14 years, aims at offering some always more original natural wines while respecting  the environment and the consumer.

After a few years of running the vineyard in organic agriculture, François David and Olivier Lecomte have attended some initiations and then some trainings in biodynamic agriculture.

In 2007 the first tests started on around twenty hectares of the estate.

In 2010 the decision was made to run the entire vineyard according to these rules. The first Demeter association audit was carried out in May 2011.

Some other steps have also been started up within this environmental concern: storing and treatment of the viticultural effluents since 1998, recovery of rain waters since 2004, photo-voltaic equipments on the roofs of the winery during 2012.

Since early 1990s, the Château de Passavant pays its contribution to the “Adelphe” association, a structure helping the local communities to finance the reprocessing of glass. Within a procedure of development of the local and fair trade, the Château de Passavant has joined with other producers in the Maine-et-Loire area (beef, pork, poultry, vegetables, bread, etc.) in order to create some common sales outlets:

- The Anjou et Ailleurs shops (Angers)

- Terres et Terroirs (Les Ponts-de-Cé)
