Olivier Dauga encourages French producers to adopt sustainable and organic practices

 

Olivier Dauga, a.k.a “Le Faiseur de Vin”, was in London last night to present new and diverse examples of his projects with wine producers in Bordeaux, South and South West France which focus on organic conversion and sustainability.

With the new projects at Univitis, Château Gros Caillou, Château Pierron, Foncadaure and Vignerons Catalans, Dauga wants to cast an increased spotlight on the importance for French wine producers to invest in protecting the environment and to follow the best international examples of successful sustainable and organic wine production.

In 2010 Dauga launched his “Green Charter” which set out the principles of his holistic approach to consultancy, highlighting the environment and considering every key human, geographic, climatic and social aspect which goes into producing a wine. The new sustainability and organic conversion projects in France represent the next step in influencing French producers to elevate their consideration of the environment and to eventually create a totally sustainable French wine industry.

Speaking at the event last night Dauga said “When I first began making wine 30 years ago sustainability was considered a luxury, and organic winemaking a maverick’s dream. Today, both disciplines are practical and essential. Not all winemakers can or should necessarily become organic, but every producer must work towards complete sustainability if our planet is to continue to produce wine in all its wonderful and varied ways for future generations. I am totally committed to this and am actively encouraging all the wine producers I work with to develop sustainable ways of growing grapes and making wine, as well as marketing and distributing it.”

With an unconventional background as a semi-professional rugby player turned winemaker, Dauga is well renowned for his informal approach and his ability to bring out the best in the producer teams he is working with to deliver modern wines which are relevant to target markets and consumers.
