La Pouyade:
A unique estate

In harmony with the nature…

At the Domaine Jean Fillioux, we are respectful of the environment, our entire vineyard has been conducted by sustainable agriculture. To do this, the vines are naturally grassed and worked every other row by plowing.

Since 2013, Christophe Fillioux and his wife Virginie (Engineer in oenology) joined the network of observers of the cognac vineyard health bulletin coordinated by the Chamber of Agriculture. The vineyard is monitored regularly during the treatment period in order to be as minimalist as possible in terms of interventions.

Since 2019, with the same objective, our plots are protected by a system of sexual confusion, a biotechnical method that limits the reproduction of cluster worms. This action is also carried out jointly with our neighbors to maximize its effectiveness.

Finally, many natural hedges, plant cover, walnut trees, truffle oaks, fruit trees are preserved or planted to ensure significant biodiversity, an attitude that is close to our hearts. Indeed, we regularly observe dozens of animal species: birds, rabbits, squirrels … each year, among others, swallows and bats come back to seek refuge in the domain, yet another proof that life is good at the Domain!
