Their delicious fresh Macon-Villages comes from many plots to the north and east of the village of Davayé where they are based, for this only stainless steel is used and minimal SO2. In the vineyards they practice minimal spraying and use organic fertilizers, Christian Collovray preferring to be hands on in the vineyard setting traps for insects and using careful canopy management, planting grasses between vines for green compost and water retention and the planting of hedges for diversity, added to by the recent addition of 16 beehives amongst the vines. In the Cellar Jean-Luc Terrier oversees the vinification, run in a highly sustainable manner, recycling and decontaminating all water used, solar panels give power and insulation keeps the cellar a constant temperature.
