Protect our soil

Thanks to plant cover

This blend of three of the main plant families – leguminous (peas, clover), cruciferous (mustard, rape, etc.) and grasses (rye, etc.) – is planted in autumn between the rows of vines and has a number of benefits. It provides (almost) permanent coverage of the soil, which reduces run-off and erosion, recycles mineral products, increases the percentage of organic matter in the soil, improves structure and protects the most fragile soils. It encourages biological activity and wildlife, limits the presence of weeds, as well as the use of herbicides of course. And so, when spring comes, a multitude of plants grow alongside the vines.
