ECOCERT is an organic inspection and a certification organism founded in 1991 by agronomists for sustainable development, which aims to offer recognition to those who engage in this type of production. The ECOCERT’s principal activity consists in an inspection, in the field, of the respects of a standard’s demands (regulation, standard or specification). Then, ECOCERT issues a document which certifies the compliance of the products, systems or services with the standard. ECOCERT principally certifies food and food products but also certifies cosmetics, detergents, perfumes and textiles.
The ladybug (or ladybird), organic viticulture’s precious little helper, is the symbol used on all our wines produced from organically grown grapes. If you want to know which of our wines are “organic”, look for the white logo showing a little ladybug on a leaf.
