Description

Cave Anne de Joyeuse is a high quality cooperative winery in Limoux, which was founded in 1929 and which currently boasts 650 members. It is directed today by Guy Andrieu. Anne de Joyeuse is one of only ten wine cooperatives in France to carry the highest level of quality accreditation. All the individual growers (all of them sustainable) who supply Anne de Joyeuse have to adhere to rigorous procedures, laid out and monitored by the co-operative's oenologists. In addition to farming practices the winery has also made a commitment to all aspects of protecting the environment. Use of all farm equipment is closely monitored to keep pollution to a minimum, all water used by the winery is collected, purified and reused. The state of the art winery utilizes solar power and geo-thermal technology and all left over raw materials are composted. Anne de Joyeuse also considers the social impact that their business has on the region. As they demand a high level of commitment from their growers they pay top dollar for their grapes, in the winery worker safety is of upmost importance. In order to insure that they are living up to their commitment the winery has contracted with Veritas Bureau International to certify each year that they are living up to their mission statement. The results of their commitment to the environment is best illustrated by the fact that over 80 varieties of orchid which are native to the region have spontaneously regenerated in their vineyards. (Hence the flower on the label). Since 1994 they have been recognized by the label “Protect The Planet” for work methods which are compatible with sustainable agriculture and the promotion of bio-diversity.

How To Drink

Wonderful as an aperitif or to accompany a dish of oysters from the Thau lagoon, or to slip gently towards a main course of stone-grilled fish.
