’s vineyards have been sustainably grown since 1999. All the work carried out by Château Bonnet
’s current owner respects certain quality criteria. The least toxic treatments are used to help encourage biological pest control. The land is worked and the vine branches are ground into the soil to reduce the use of herbicides and prevent soil erosion. The fertilizers used are mainly organic. The harvesting is carried out by hand as Beaujolais is one of the few wine regions in the world where this is necessary. Typical Beaujolais wines are obtained from the maceration of whole bunches of grapes.
