Jas de Bel Argent is a very young vineyard whose first vines were planted in 2019. At the cost of enormous work, this field in one piece was transformed into a 30 acres (12ha) vineyard in the space of 3 years.
Since the beginning of the adventure, we have chosen and adhered to the methods of organic farming. We are proudly able to create an Organic Certified wine from our very first cuvée.
The year 2022 will be the first vintage. We have pampered our vines for this cuvée which we have named as "L'Inconnue" (The Unknown)
At Jas de Bel Argent, the choice to grow our crops organically was straightforward from the beginning. "Bio", a big word, is used all the time. But how is this principle applied? What does it represent ?
In a nutshell, this is how we grow "organic" :
We will certainly not obtain the same yields as in conventional. It's a lot more land work and a lot more handling in general. Overall, our vines are growing and adapting to organic constraints (competition with weeds, no synthetic fertilizers). But we work without any stress related to the toxicity of what we touch throughout the year and the land is easier and easier to work.
At Jas de Bel Argent, there is no alternative. Much more than a cultural practice, "organic" is a lifestyle choice.
We offer 3 types of wines :
The first cuvée will be ready for the end of this year 2022 in rosé and white. The red won't be ready until next spring !
