Biodynamic farming is a holistic approach to agriculture in which vitality has the highest priority. Its origin lies in the agricultural course held by Rudolf Steiner in 1924. Demeter is the international logo of certified biodynamic food that you will see on packaging in shops and supermarkets, in farm shops, and at farmers' markets selling biodynamic food. It is the world's oldest certification mark, and is your guarantee of high quality food, wine and products farmed and produced to the highest standards.
Originally established way back in the 15th century, the imposing and impressive Château Couronneau comprises 38 hectares of vineyards, all certified for organic (Ecocert) and biodynamic (Demeter) wine production. The property itself lies just outside the small town of Ligueux to the south of Sainte-Foy-la-Grande and the Dordogne river. Located at the highest point in the local area at some 180 metres above sea-level, vines benefit from the clay/limestone soils with their ability to balance water retention with good drainage. The current owners, Christophe and Bénédicte Piat purchased the property back in 1994 with the intention of restoring the château to its former glory and to re-plant the vineyards and convert to organics.
