Domaine Saint Cyr consists of 27 hectares of organic vines. It was through a lot of hard work that the quality level we know nowadays was achieved. The process began slowly and easily for the family members, when Jacqueline and Michel Saint-Cyr bought the Domaine Bellevue in 1963. They started with 13 hectares and continued to add parcels, some of them high quality AOC Cru du Beaujolais. Gradually, the family started to set up all required elements to gain organic certification and push the quality of the wines forward, now recognized as one of Beaujolais' solid values. With its 27 hectares, Domaine Saint Cyr is the biggest organically certified domain in the Beaujolais region.
The Saint Cyr family has been practising integrated viticulture managementfor more than 20 years and have finally received their organic certification. The family did not hesitate to join the Terra Vitis Association when it was created in 1998 and after few years in conversion, becoming organic certified was possible and pretty easy. The domain also chooses to cover crops in order to create biodiversity shelter, limit yields and prevent erosion, something that had been problematic in sloped vineyards.
