Inclusive wine harvest
The young winegrowers in our winery wanted to create a new super premium wine. Six plots of land that fulfill their requirement were identified in the Saint-Véran appellation. Low yields, reduced use of chemicals, harvesting by hand, micro-vinification…. for the harvest, they wanted to work with people with disabilities, an approach implemented with the help of a local association that facilitates integration into the labour market for people with disabilities. Each wine harvest presented a genuine opportunity to interact with these workers. Today, the winegrowers are proud to introduce the fruits of this labour: an iconic wine named “Révélis”.
“Our motivation is to learn, be curious, expand our knowledge and discuss topics with our partners and the people we work with. Working together towards a cause that makes sense and achieving personal fulfilment at the same time is the primary reason for our commitment to this project.” This is how the “Impact Zero” association defines what it does. Twenty-seven employees have voluntarily committed to an approach that aims to reduce the environmental impact of our packaging still further. Visits by our suppliers to gain a deeper understanding of production processes, intervention of experts in eco-design, internal work to study the lifecycle of each element of our packaging, etc. The association’s objective is to reconsider and redefine the packaging of our wines, in accordance with technical and economic constraints, to allow our wine cellars to use packaging that has the lowest possible impact on the environment.
