Vineyard Info

Since Greek merchants first introduced the cultivation of vines to the area more than 2,000 years ago, the Corbières region in Languedoc, south of France, has been intrinsically linked with wine growers and the making of wine. Recognizing the ideal grape growing conditions in Corbières, in the 12th Century, the monks of the Cistercian Order undertook the task of developing viniculture in the region. These monks were renowned as highly skilled wine growers. They worked wonders, and as a result, their agricultural domains became very prosperous. One of these domains was our Caraguilhes.

Our vineyards cover 135 hectares and are strategically surrounded and protected by 500 hectares of garrigue (wild land) constituting an rich ecosystem riche and a unique environment. Situated just 30 kilometers from the Mediterranean sea at altitudes of 100 to 180 meters, the vineyards at Caraguilhes are exposed to the north west wind (the Tramontane) which is a natural aide, keeping the vines healthy by limiting fungal maladies (champignons) and reducing the population of harmful insects. The wind also cools the vines on hot summer days, which helps to maintain acidity levels in the grapes and allows them to mature more slowly and more completely.

The estate is ECOCERT Organic certified has been practicing organic winegrowing since the 1990s, refusing to use chemical fertilizers, herbicides and insecticides and carrying on the proud tradition of high quality organic wine-making.
