“Ludovic Bonnelle produces wines using no chemical interference in the vineyard or winery, including sulphur, thanks to the hight quality of the grapes harvested.”
The soils of the Southwest lie mainly on the Tertiary sedimentary lands of the Aquitaine Basin and on the ancient alluvial deposits of the Quaternary period terraces. The vineyard is planted on clay-limestone soils, sands, pebbles, clays, grey limestones with a clay subsoil. The geological activities contributed to split this region into many sub-regions showing diversity in their soil composition. Soils and subsoils are often poor with good drainage, which is favourable to the cultivation of grapes.

Domaine du Pech is a family owned and run domaine in the heart of south west France focusing on terroir expression, biodynamic processes and crafted quality. The 17-hectare estate was founded in 1978 by Daniel Tissot and is located on the slopes of Sainte-Colombe-en-Bruilhois of northern Gascony, on the south-eastern border of AOC Buzet, roughly 100km south east of Bordeaux. The wines are produced from the typical varieties of the region, which includes Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc for the red wines.
