'Zero pesticide residue', an endorsement that aims to reassure wine consumers

October 18, 2019

The Nouveaux Champs collective association has been managing the private endorsement since January 2018 and now represents 61 farmers, including three co-operative wineries - the first in Buzet in Lot-et-Garonne, then Tutiac in Gironde and most recently Robert & Marcel in Maine-et-Loire. None of them have so far marketed a bottle with the ZRP endorsement, but they should soon be joined by other industry members, both independent winegrowers and trading companies
