- HISTORY -
Château Moulin de Peyronin was born in 1976 when Claude Jougla, a renowned tinderbox maker, arrived in the Bordeaux region and started organic agriculture.
When Mr. Jougla passed away, one of his daughters took over the reins of the property and reluctantly decided to part with it a few years later.
It is in 2006 that our story begun when we bought the property at the age of only 25 years: We are Véronique and Franck TERRAL, the happy owners of the vineyard.
- OUR BACKGROUND -
We both studied at the Lycée Agricole de Libourne - Montagne. We are complementary since one has a BTS in Viticulture and Oenology and the other a BTS in Wine and Spirits.
After having had some professional experiences in the wine industry, the desire to live from our passion brought us to push the doors of Château Moulin de Peyronin.
The environment and the mode of culture practiced seduced us immediately and led us to continue towards this way by converting us in Biodynamy in 2019.
ORGANIC AGRICULTURE / BIODYNAMIC CULTURE
At Chateau Moulin de Peyronin, we integrate practices in line with the organic agriculture method that allows us to prevent the appearance of diseases.
We are looking for a global balance that will allow the vine to develop in a harmonious and healthy way.
The human work is privileged. The preventive fight is very important: the observation of the vineyard is this essential.
The vineyard has been registered as organic since 1975 and we obtained the ECOCERT certification in 1985.
We have decided to convert to Biodynamics in 2017 and our wines obtained DEMETER certification two years later, in 2019.
We were seduced by this vision of organic agriculture. Our goal is to give ourselves all the means to reflect in our wines; the richness of our terroir and the work of Human.
Biodynamics resonates in our minds as an exploitation that must keep a coherence with the environment, not the environment in general but the environment that surrounds it.
In our minds, biodynamics rhymes with biodiversity, agroforestry, respect for the soil and the environment.
