The Wine Estate

"A unique place, 70 hectares in one piece, at the top of the Clape". 150 metres above sea level, a maritime influence - the sea is 5 kilometres away, behind a rocky bar -; a dominant blue side with the ponds, Bages, Gruissan; and a large plateau, with the scents of the scrubland, in the colours of limestone. "The estate has always existed, but after the phylloxera, the vines became pasture land for sheep"... Until q...
