- A word from nature
« One day, a long time ago and in a faraway place, or so the legend goes, there was a huge forest fire that was raging the countryside. All the animals were terrified, running around in circles, screaming, crying and helplessly watching the impending disaster.
But there in the middle of the flames, and above the cowering animals, was a tiny hummingbird busy flying from a small pond to the fire, each time fetching a few drops with its beak to throw on the flames. […]
After a while, an old grouchy armadillo, annoyed by this ridiculous useless agitation on the part of the hummingbird, cried out :
“Tiny bird! Don’t be a fool. It is not with those miniscule drops of water one after the other that you are going to put out the fire and save us all ! ”
To which the hummingbird replied, “Could be, but I’m going to do my bit”.
Such is our responsibility to the world for we are not completely powerless if we so choose. »
The Legend of the Hummingbird, Pierre Rabhi
- A word from the estate
At Château de Bellet we believe that the vinifaction process, from vine to wine, should
sublimate the raw material.
Our winemakers treat our exceptional Terroir and grapes with the greatest of respect using organic farming methods, mild vinification and ageing procedures as well as limited interventions to produce great wines.
It is in this friendly atmosphere that men, women and know-hows act as intermediaries between what nature has to offer and the exceptional wines we produce at Château de Bellet.
