Concerned about its environmental impact, the Laurent-Perrier vineyard holds two environmental certifications: HVE (Haute Valeur Environnementale) level 3 and VDC (Viticulture Durable en Champagne). In this context, mechanical working of the soil is an important challenge.
Always on the lookout for new developments and improvements, the vineyard has invested in the Vitibot. This is an autonomous electric straddling robot capable of mechanically weeding the soil and mowing the grass. Connected by GPS, once the plots have been surveyed, the robot works on its own. The Vitibot enables the Laurent-Perrier vineyard to respond in part to the new challenges of sustainable viticulture and the reduction of carbon emissions.
