Champagne Louis Roederer has joined the growing global club of big name producers that have completed conversion to organic certification.

The house was among the leaders of the shift to organic when it embarked on an organic certification process for half of its estate in 2018, with the whole of Roederer’s 115ha of vines now completing the process by which they can gain organic growing certification (The ‘AB’ symbol in France).

The Champagne House first embarked on a more sustainable path two decades ago, when the company began a transition to ‘renaissance viticulture’ in its vineyards, with a focus on massal selection, gentle pruning, daily care and “practices that respect the living environment”.
