Beaufort are organic, biodynamic and even shun sulphur and copper which the other strictest biodynamic and organic producers use. Supposedly winemaker Jacques Beaufort became deathly ill in the late 60s due to exposure to synthetic pesticides and herbicides used in the vineyards. By ‘71 he had converted to entirely organic production and is passionate about removing all chemicals from winemaking. He makes his own compost from animal and plant sources, uses homeopathic formulas in his vineyards, only allows naturally occurring wild yeasts, and ages his wines as long as possible on their lees. Stay healthy: drink Beaufort!
