Our story

"HIS LIVING IN VAIN, THE ONE WHO TO LIVE AFFORDABLE, GIVES NO CARE" Motto of the house of LatsoursA land of stopoversHigh
place for wine tourism today, the immense territory of Lastours was already a land of stopovers in the heart of the Corbières at the dawn of the first millennium. Garrisons were stationed there and a fortress watched over the rural roads joining the Domitian way. From the 13th century to the Revolution, these lands of mixed farming (wood, cattle, cereals, vines), which were dependent on the Viscounts of Narbonne, only knew three families of owners, rich lords who lived very
comfortably in the castle.
The
birth of a vineyardConfiscated

in 1791 and sold in 1801, Lastours did not find its owners again at the end of the Revolution. Here, as elsewhere in the Corbières, vines became increasingly important during the 19th century. Two successive families, the Calas first, then the Martin family, fond of botany and agronomy, forge the reputation of the estate's wines. In the vineyard, the manager experiments with grafting methods while the owners promote their production through

advertising.
Passion
rediscoveredIn

1940, Lastours became the property of the writer Louis-Pierre Lestringuez, who wanted to get away from an occupied Paris. While family and friends were protected during the war, the immense property was neglected, and the castle and its vineyard gradually declined. In 2004, a family of enthusiasts fell in love with this beautiful and neglected land. Organic practices, plot selections, energy savings, wine tourism: the precise work carried out by the Allards is in keeping with this terroir and its long

history.
