THE PROJECT OF CHÂTEAU MAGDELEINE BOUHOU
Organic certification of the Château
Since I took over my father’s wine estate in 2004, I have been aware of the great potential of our terroir and I have been striving towards authentic expression of this terroir. I have instigated many changes in both the cellar and the vineyard. All of these efforts allow us to be ready for our conversion to organic viticulture. I believe this will allow our terroir to blossom.
Conversion to organic viticulture has been anticipated
We have been farming according to organic principles for the past few seasons. This crowdfunding campaign will allow us to officially start the estate certification beginning with the 2019 season.
Funds collected will be used to purchase vineyard equipment, specifically a spraying system which will allow us to apply organic preparations more accurately, hence reducing the amount of product used.
This project is part of a broader investment scheme which will finance the overall conversion to organic agriculture.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED?
The WineFunding concept is simple and innovative:
