#ESDW2019 / Sustainable Development Goal 13 : Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts
Every year, the Earth confronts us with its trials. In 2018, we had a strong attack of late mildew: this form of fungus attacks the vine when the humidity conditions are optimal. To treat the vine it is necessary to leave the tractor, and to treat. By investing in a reclaimed panel sprayer, we have reduced our product consumption by 30%. But that’s not how we will fight climate change and its impacts.
It is thanks to the resistant varieties on which the IFV and the INRA work. We are going to plant La Floréal: a white grape variety with a high resistance to mildew and total resistance to powdery mildew. The wines obtained thanks to the Floreal are expressive, aromatic and with a good freshness. The aromas are dominated by notes of exotic fruits and boxwood and we are already looking forward to planting this grape variety to discover the wines we will make with it.
