Union de Producteurs de Saint-Emilion
Our 800 hectares of vines covering the slopes, the plateau and the plains of Saint-Emilion provide a complete range of wines. We are able to offer various types of wines according to the different “terroirs” of the AOC Saint-Emilion.
Our famous and prestigious « terroir » is enhanced by the quality of our work and of our equipment. This quality is recognized at any step of our daily work: we gained ISO 9002 accreditation in 1996, AGRICONFIANCE in 1997 (accreditation linked to the quality of the work made in the vineyard by our producers), ISO 9001 version 2000 in 2004, IFS and BRC in 2006 (for vinification, maturing and marketing of our wines) – we are proud to be the only one company in the wine business to have this double high standard certification IFS and BRC (superior levels).
