Aux Vignobles Audubert notre priorité est certes de produire des vins de qualité, mais aussi de protéger l’environnement, car c’est la nature elle-même qui nous donne ces beaux produits.

For several years now, we have been very sensitive to everything related to the environment. No release is made in nature. In addition, each activity position is designed to have no environmental and human impact.

It is for this reason that since 2012, we have become members of the 1st EMS (Environmental Management System) association for Bordeaux wines, which allows us to have the ISO 14001 standard, an internationally recognized standard.

The drafting of the specifications is based on the principle of sustainable agriculture.
It is about committing to respect six common values :

  • Promote sustainable viticulture, respectful of the environment, and support the multifunctionality of agriculture,
  • Prioritize above all natural regulatory mechanisms,
  • Foster a healthy environment to protect the health of producers, their employees and citizens in general,
  • Ensure the production of healthy grapes and obtain great wines by reducing the residue rate to the maximum,
  • Increase biological diversity in the plots and their surroundings,
  • Improve the quality of water, air and wine-growing soil.

Tous les vignerons français peuvent adhérer à l’association Terra Vitis. L’obtention de la certification se fait après un diagnostic global de l’exploitation, le respect d’un cahier des charges spécifique et la réussite de l’audit de certification (à passer tous les ans).  Le vignoble Audubert s’committed to respecting the Vineyard and his men maintaining biodiversity.

La Haute Valeur Environnementale (HVE) correspond au niveau le plus élevé de la certification environnementale des exploitations agricoles.

Certification HVE is based on an obligation of result. It can be obtained in various ways, corresponding to the evaluation of the indicators of the biodiversity strategy of plant health, the management of soil fertility and water management.

ISO 14001 establishes the requirements associated with guidelines for implementing the standard within environmental systems. Other standards in this family focus on specific approaches such as audits, communications, labeling and life cycle assessment, and also address environmental challenges associated with climate change.

This environmental progress approach allows us to have a policy including a commitment to continuous improvement and pollution prevention.

We have also installed bat nesting boxes around our plots.
At night, they can thus go hunting in the vineyards. They are insectivorous, and feed 80% of insects harmful to the vine. Allowing bats to nest near the vines preserves the biodiversity of the plots, by limiting the treatments of the plot (less inputs and less pollution from vehicles).

We have many projects to improve our relationship with the environment such as the construction of a new winery and the installation of solar panels.

Les panneaux photovoltaïques sont installés et branchés depuis le printemps ce qui nous permet de générer en électricité l’équivalent de la consommation annuelle de l’exploitation.

Le chai étant terminé, nous sommes maintenant prêt pour les vendanges 2022. Nous avons tout mit en œuvre pour respecter au mieux l’environnement et avoir une sécurité au travail.
Ces améliorations consistent à réduire notre impact environnemental grâce à :


  • Less polluting materials
  • Very good quality insulation (better temperature control, less energy loss)
  • Save water : soil for a washing simplified because tank inside bright annealed
  • Installation of LED bulbs
  • Individual tank regulation
  • Optimized workspaces in order to favor ergonomics
