AOC/AOP

Two concepts central to higher end French wines are the notion of "terroir", which links the style of the wines to the specific locations where the grapes are grown and the wine is made, and the Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC) France and (AOP) Appellation d’Origine Protégée Europe system. Appellation rules closely define which grape varieties and winemaking practices are approved for classification in each of France's several hundred geographically defined appellations, which can cover entire regions, individual villages or even specific vineyards.

We do not select wines based on them being organic, biodynamic, or sustainable, but many of the wines produced by our winemakres fall in to one or more of these categories. The US regulations for organic wines are different from the French regulations for organic wines. Therefore, the French organic wines can’t carry on the bottle the French organic logo. We will mentionned in our descriptif if the wine is labeled organic in France.
