Gilles Louvet Vineyards
Gilles Louvet Vineyards was founded in 1993 to create exceptional wine in Languedoc by reviving ancient grape growing methods that respect the environment and the richness of the soil. Gilles Louvet’s passion for this lifestyle stems from his grandfather, a fellow vintner. Through him, Gilles gained a deep knowledge of each vine and type of soil that enables him and his partners to produce the best quality grapes from the land. Great importance is placed on listening to the needs and seasonal cycles of nature in order to bring out the distinctive qualities of the Languedoc region, resulting in the unique character of the wines of Gilles Louvet Vineyards.
In order to control vine and grape disease and weeds that grow in the vineyards, Gilles Louvet Vineyards only use environmentally-friendly methods and products. Aromatic plants, wild flowers and bushes grow throughout the vineyards, maintaining a rich biodiversity and improving the soil structure. Through these practices, the soil has evolved to become richer and healthier, which in turn produces wines with more expressive, complex personalities. Gilles Louvet Vineyards meets the requirements of all the international certifications that allow it to vinify and sell organic wines (NOP, ECOCERT, Delinat, KRAV).
