For many years, each of Moët Hennessy’s Maisons have been on the path to sustainable development. Five years ago, Moët Hennessy decided to unite the men and women of all the Maisons to construct a common project around the viticulture committee. More than 40 individuals came together to orchestrate the sharing of savoir-faire learned on the ground at our Maisons around the world. This undertaking led to concrete actions: significant investments in environmentally-friendly equipment, training for farmers and wine-makers in new technologies, assistance in attaining responsible viticulture certifications and support for scientific and university projects to disseminate knowledge and transmit living soils to the future generations.
