We're talking to you about his Winery
Louis Terral n’est pas originaire du Bugey ? Et alors !
Louis Terral is curious and passionate about biodynamics, agroforestry, permaculture, composts... a vision of nature that is quite similar to the philosophy of the Japanese Masonobu Fukuoka (natural agriculture). His objective: to do without all the machines that consume carbon, to be self-sufficient (and therefore autonomous) with his work, his vegetable garden. He has a lot of projects in his head, a lot of desires and especially the desire to do things well in perfect harmony with nature.
