The Dietrich have been practicing organic farming for 20 years and the estate has been biodynamic certified since 2003 (Demeter certification). Their goal is to have the least possible impact on the environment: they use as few inputs as possible and want their field to be as eco-friendly as possible.
Pierre Dietrich explained the origin of the name of the domain: Achillée (say akilé, it comes from the Latin) is a flower used in biodynamics, which shares the rays of the sun equitably. It is in this egalitarian spirit that the domain is managed, including employees.
