Since its arrival at the beginning of the year, the autonomous over-the-row robot “TED” has changed a great deal. Over the last three months, TED has made great progress, both technologically and agriculturally, thanks to constant support from Naïo and to Angélus’s expertise.
For several years now, Angélus has been fully committed to sustainable vine-growing practices and to increasing its range of viticultural methods. In line with this undertaking, our teams have been seeding different plant species in the vineyard, and this year common vetch, green pea and secale sylvestre have been sown in inter-rows that are usually ploughed. Commonly used in vine-growing, seeds are an additional agronomic lever supporting the work carried out by our vineyard crew throughout the year.
Well into spring, the vineyard transforms and comes back to life at a rapid pace.
A rather strange device has been operating in the Angélus vineyard these last few weeks. A robot in fact by the name of Ted, which is a silent, driverless, over-the-row tractor made by the Toulouse company Naïo Technologies.
What an astonishing year with, in six months, more rainfall than normally in a whole year!
Chateau Angelus 007 limited edition is a tribute to the world-famous spy James Bond and his iconic codename.
On the occasion of a dinner organized for the launch of the Primeurs tasting week the 31st of March, Angélus hosted 150 guests -among them négociants, importers, distributors and journalists.
Angélus this week obtained from the Ministry of Agriculture and the AFNOR the HVE certification.
