A Family-Run Winery in the 10th Generation of Production
Currently, the 9th and 10th generations are running Champagne Rodez. Mickael manages the winery and preserves this family treasure. His son, Pol Auguste, will be the 10th generation to take over the family’s tradition of winemaking. Mickael follows mechanical weeding to the grasses and uses domesticated organic techniques to protect the vines. Therefore the estate follows organic and biodynamic viticulture with the goal of maintaining environmentally friendly viticulture. The winery received its HVE certificate in June 2012. However, the Champagne Rodez farm is the first French wine farm to have the certification of “High Environment Value.” The winery aims to produce exceptional wines using organic and biodynamic production methods.
Unique Terroir and the Importance of Quality
The unique terroir and favorable climate help with the cultivation of quality grapes. Moreover, the winemakers at the Champagne Rodez Winery strive to preserve the integrity and quality of wines. They use small oak barrels for vinification and do not put their wines through malolactic fermentation.
