Golden Ratio

 

The names of our wines - The basis of the shape

1,618 is known as the “golden ratio” and “divine proportion” among other things.

In 300BC Euclid elaborated this number although the first attempts at defining this concept date even farther back.

Between Euclid and the 21st century, scholars, writers and artists have continuously explored this subject: Fibonacci numbers and research by Pacioli and Dalì.

Nature uses the golden ratio in endless circumstances:

  • daisies
  • roses
  • the nautilus
  • the equiangular spiral used by hawks when hunting
  • the pattern of leaves on stems
  • the geometrical perfection of some solids
  • human body
