Les Vignerons de Buzet - Our values

Les Vignerons de Buzet winery has been committed to corporate social and environmental responsibility (CSR) for over 10 years.  Our efforts to neutralize our environmental footprint as far as possible have been rewarded, in terms of press coverage and sales, as well as on the technical side. But this is only the first step. We must continue to innovate, to shape tomorrow’s world. How? By working even more closely with Nature.  Nature is innovation’s oldest laboratory. For 400 million years, plants have been inventing, evolving and adopting new strategies. The  possibilities are enormous for a cooperative winery such as ours.  Let us seize these opportunities. For economic reasons, of course, but above all, for ethical reasons. Our children look to us. Let us show them how a society can work in harmony with Nature.
