Vignerons Indépendants de France‘s logo is the sign of high standards, the emblem of an independent viticulture, rich with the diversity of its “terroirs”, climates, know-how, men and women.

For the consumer, the logo is the mark of an Independent Winegrower‘s wine, which represents “authentic wines and personalities”.

To leave a mark of our involvement and the quality of our work, we have signed the Vignerons Indépendants de France’s charter. The Independent Winegrower:

– Respects his soil
– Cultivates his vine
– Harvests his grapes
– Turns to wine and grows his wine
– Elaborates his brandy
– Bottles his production is his cellar
– Commercialises his wine
– Betters himself in the respect of tradition
– Welcomes, advises about wine tasting and takes pleasure to present the results of his work and cultivation

As a mark of recognition, we affix the Independent Winegrowers’ logo on our bottles. It is the emblem of our know-how and our belonging to a family of professionals responsible and respectful of tradition.

The consumer who chooses “Vigneron Indépendant” stamped wines has the guarantee to find a product complying with our trade charter.

Independent Winegrowers, it’s a fulfilled promise!
