The Levins are committed to the difficult Ecocert organic certification in both winery and vineyards. Their experience is that, by excluding artificial interventions and nurturing a healthy ecosystem, their vines are more resilient, grape flavours are more complex, and the resulting organic wines are more nuanced in both youth and maturity.
Their organic and eco-sustainable practices include handpicking, leaf plucking, certified organic and biodynamic vineyard preparations, high open spaced trellising, hand ploughing and green harvesting; complete supply chain traceability and a commitment to soil conservation using companion planting and no-till agriculture. (Certified Organic No 64932 / 12P ECOCERT.)
The wines are grounded in the Loire Valley terroir, using modern, organic winemaking and organic and biodynamic viticulture practices – to pursue a pure expression of Sauvignon Blanc, from its original home, the Loire.
