Château Couhins - INRA

Regional Winner - Sustainable Wine Tourism Practices - Bordeaux

Château Couhins is located within easy reach of the city of Bordeaux. Since 1968 it has been both the property and showcase of the National Institute of Agricultural Research (INRA). The estate has enabled the Institute to implement innovative vine cultivation and wine-making practices in order to produce high quality wines with low environmental impact. This approach can be highlighted and explained on site to operators in the wine sector and non-professional enthusiasts alike. These environmentally responsible innovations, some of which are now regularly practiced by many other properties, enabled Château Couhins to obtain the ISO 14001 certification.
