(66) Pyrénées-Orientales

Our 4 hectares of vines are located in Calce (66) not far from Perpignan in Roussillon. The grape varieties are Carignan, Grenache Noir, Gris and Blanc. Syrah, Mourvedre, Maccabeo and Muscat Petit Grain. The vines are 40 to 90 years old, on hillsides, with very small yields of 8 to 15 hectolitres/hectare, typical of Calce. Harvesting is manual and in 12 kg crates. The soil is very varied geologically, with limestone, schists and marl. We have 22 parcels sometimes joined together which we vinify in "parcel" and indigenous yeasts so that the terroir can be expressed in our wines. Therefore, our micro vintages (never more than 1000 bottles) are very different from each other, no synthetic weedkiller, pesticide or antifungal agent here. Grass is controlled by cultivating the soil with a "Canadian" shallow plough and grassing is natural. No plant seedlings either in our country, the balance of the biotope is a fragile balance that must be respected and not jostled with a monoculture lawn. We mainly use chicken droppings authorised in organic farming as nitrogen. We are in "Vin de France" and we are not certified.

Our story

After years of frustration and the desire to become a winegrower, the hazards of life brought James and his family to the clay and limestone paths of Calce. Domaine Cau Eden started with plots of vines destined to be forgotten, and a 1905 Marmonier press redone for the 2011 harvest. The parcels of vines are scattered throughout the town of Calce, the land of the Tramontane, which blows mercilessly. Most of the old vines were waiting for the grubbing-up premium to be renewed. Thanks to the help of neighbouring winegrowers, hard work and donations of equipment, we have been able to advance the estate. A way of working that expresses a certain tradition, expression of the terroir and idea of wine! 3 children run and play in our vineyards, no synthetic pesticides or herbicides are used, nothing that could make them sick or harm nature. Not to mention the wine drinkers and our dog Freddy! the bottling is done by us by hand, bottle by bottle, cork by cork. The labels are printed here, cut and glued one by one by hand. The vinification is done in stainless steel tanks, which must be kept scrupulously clean, which allows us to use very little sulphites mainly just before the setting. Today we have 4 hectares and a production of 5000 bottles when the sky allows it.

Other little stories

To be a winegrower? It is simply the most complete and beautiful job for me. It's sometimes hard and physically challenging, but we're never done learning, and meeting wonderful people. Working in an exceptional natural setting in Calce between the sea and the mountains, making the wines you want to drink is a privilege for me...
