Château Auzias-Paretlongue is located in the commune of Pennautier, in the Languedoc region. Here, the vines have been cultivated for more than 2000 years. On this estate, the Romans, the canons of Carcassonne and the Auzias family followed one another. More than 13 different grape varieties are grown on the hillside terroirs in PDO Cabardès and on the silty plains in PGI Cité de Carcassonne.

We are extremely committed to sustainable production and organic conversion. The vines are grassed, here no insecticide, glyphosates or chemical fertilizers. During your stay at the estate you will be able to share and feel our passion for nature and our environment.

Today we sell about 70% of our wines for export and they are recognized all over the world.

Our story

Located next to the City of Carcassonne and the Canal du Midi, the Auzias estate was created in the 12th century. After the First World War, during the renovations made by the winegrower of the estate, a status of a Virgin and Child was dug up by the farmer. The work exhibited in the chapel of Notre-Dame de Paretlongue can still be appreciated today. The discovery testifies to the age of the estate in the region and explains the exceptional terroir we have at our disposal.

It was Eugène Castel, in the 1920s, who introduced the Atlantic varieties to the estate by planting Merlot and Cabernet. He installed them in the vineyards between Bonal and Moural on the foundations of an ancient Gallo-Roman city. There is also a beautiful marble mosaic.

Today, it is Nathalie, Dominiquue, and their four children who are developing the estate. Upon their arrival, they restructured the 160 hectares and developed international sales.

Other little stories

For us, being a winegrower means first of all loving our land, our terroir. When you are aware of what happened in the vineyard before you arrived, you have the desire and responsibility to keep this activity going.
