Historically, the domain's primary activity was the vine . Today, and in accordance with the principles of biodynamics, we tend to diversify with a small production of cereals (bread made by hand and cooked over a wood fire by L'Ami du Pain à Blaceret or transformed into beer à la Farlodoise. ), some processed aromatic and medicinal plants. www.elixir-lab.com
The estate was created in 2001 on family land in Beaujolais.
Today Romain des Grottes and Perrine Stas
The cultivation methods are very alternative:
- few inputs (treatment of the vine with very little copper and sulfur, herbal teas and fermented extracts)
- manual work favoured over mechanization - very small but very well valued yields
A range of vine products always evolving: Grape juice flavoured with herbal tea,
Sparkling Natural, and Ancestral methods red and white, Red wine without sulphites ....
Committed alternative agriculture: Organic and biodynamic certified by FR BIO 01 and under mentino Nature et Progrès
