OUR KNOW HOW
From the 60s, a policy of replacing the vines of big production was started with a more qualitative plantings, while largely preserving the historical grape varieties of Corbières such as Grenache, Syrah, Carignan and Cinsault.
Other varieties have been successfully introduced such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon or Chardonnay.
In the same spirit of improving our wines, a gradual transformation of the winery has become essential to adapt to modern winemaking techniques.
