Qualité et environnement


Our approach does involve empty promises and meaningless slogans. Our claims are based on commitment and first-hand experience at the Cave du Roi Dagobert. The results are clearly visible:

The quality of a wine comes first and foremost from the quality of the fruit. Our winery technicians and members work together to ensure that the optimum viticultural practices are in place for our vines and grapes. Strict guidelines define production methods according to speciality and terroir. Our winery technicians carry out parcel visits to verify that objectives are met and a parcel classification system allows us to manage harvests by grouping together similar quality parcels. This quality assurance determines the fruit's value.
The traceability of viticultural practices is natural and possible since the Cave du Roi Dagobert only markets wines produced from its own winemakers' grapes. All interventions are recorded by the winemaker, either in notebook or electronic form and all recorded information is then verified by our technicians. Non-conformity can lead to the grapes being de-classified or to a collection refusal in the event of regulatory non-conformity. 
The environment forms the winemaker's natural framework. We understand the importance of preserving an exceptional environment so that we can pass it on unchanged to future generations. It is for this reason that our winemakers have been committed to integrated viticulture for over fifteen years. This approach involves grassing vines, integrated treatment interventions and the use of natural control methods. Around 40 hectares of vines are now grown in accordance with organic specifications. 
All of these practices are now monitored by independent external bodies (Bureau Véritas and Écocert ) and receive official recognition:

  - IFS for product safety
- Agri-confiance (based on standard  NFV01-007) for reducing the impact of viticultural activity on the environment
-  AB label certifying that wines are produced from organically-grown grapes
