The 2018 vintage is raising high hopes. The 2018 harvests got off to a promising start.
We have six beehives on the estate. Brown’s apiary has one goal: stop decline of bees and protect them by restoring their habitat.
Wetland areas are encouraged as they increase Brown’s biodiversity.
Some parts of the estate have been turned over entirely to developing flora and fauna.
Our estate also has numerous abandoned buildings where there is very little human intervention.
The chateau’s parks have unique plant and flower species.
We established a tree and hedge planting programme in 2015.
A vineyard given care and attention. Particular attention is paid to soil care.
We provide grass cover between the rows and use only natural fertilisers
Prudent use of plant protection products thanks to our own weather station, in place since 2013.
We have opted for a prudent use of insecticides thanks to insect traps.
We have opted for sustainable pest management to combat vine diseases.
