Orchidées, Maisons de Vin provides consumers with top quality sustainable products, creating shared value for our territory.
Developing, implementing, sharing and promoting tomorrow’s viticulture.
As consumers are increasingly sensitive about the environment and their well-being, we have to market healthy products elaborated according to measures respecting humans and the natural environment. We want to construct a responsible, innovative and bold business model allowing us to preserve the area’s terroir, territory and expertise in response to environmental, social and economic changes; enabling locals to earn a decent living; providing them with rewarding experiences and offering pleasure to consumers, all the while honoring the promise of increasingly “pure” wines.
Orchidées, Maisons de Vin, the leading reference in Loire Valley still and sparkling wines, wants to promote a new form of vine-growing more respectful of consumers, vintners and nature. This commitment is the logical continuity of the sustainable development strategy launched by Ackerman, one of the few Loire Valley wine houses, recognized for having initiated as of 1998, a system of quality management according to ISO standards. All of the vineyards benefit from biocontrol solutions. At present, we have several certifications, from vine-growing through to sales, bearing witness to our commitment to the environment.

- Greater access to foreign markets
