A magnificent terroir

We are committed to restoring in the wines of Château Perron all the excellence of our terroir, consisting essentially of gravelly and sandy-gravelly sandy soil, that guarantees the production of fine wines induced by silky tannins.

The term “lande” comes from Celtic “landa”: uncultivated, poor land where broom and heather grow. This difficult land is favorable for the vines which will produce few grapes but of high quality.

 

The difficulty is to respect this natural finess as much as possible during the vinification period by working the delicate tannins of  grapes smoothness. This environmentally friendly production approach is just to thank the potential of our unique terroir.

 

This is why we are committed to environmental initiatives such as the ISO 14001 standard within the environmental management system, HVE3 standard and also organic conversion started in 2019.
