2000 years ago, the Romans chose this exceptional terroir to plant vines in the middle of fragant garrigue and olive trees. The name Minervois has its origins in the history of the ancient city of Minerve, a stronghold established by the Romans and dedicated to the eponymous goddess, the Goddess of Wisdom.
The Minervois terroir is a mosaic of mineral soils, composed of schist, grey, quartz, marble, limestone and clay, which shape the personality of each of our wines. It is located 30 km from Carcassonne in the foothills of the Massif Central.
A large south-facing amphitheatre with a mild Mediterranean climate, it is subject to oceanic influences and with its cool nights, offers optimal ripening conditions for our grapes.
