In the region, there is now a broad consensus on organic farming and many wine growers have adopted it. However, Château Pech-Latt was one of the pioneers in Occitania to switch entirely to organic viticulture out of visionary conviction. The sign of a domain which leads its way in complete independence, respectful of its terroir since always.
In the 1970s, Château Pech-Latt made the radical choice to stop herbicides in the cultivation of its vines, before becoming one of the very first estates certified in organic farming in 1991, when this label was created.
