The Lihours took over Domaine Castera in 1895 and have been caring for the vineyard for five generations. Their ambition is to produce fresh and faithful wines from the Pyrenean Piedmont region. And therefore not to make wines that are universal, exuberant and devoid of identity. Christian and his son, Frank, are respectful of the vine and the soil, they work without rotting, without acaricides and use natural fertilizers, manure, for the pleasure of the soil and the vine!
The family owns various small parcels of land spread over three localities; Tauzy, Caubegt and Les Terrasses. Respectively, 2, 8, and 1.3 ha each. Their vintages are therefore made from 4.3 ha of Gros Manseng, 6 ha of Petit Manseng and less than one ha of Petit Courbu.
The estate has existed since 1749, the Lihour family took over the management of the estate in 1895 and has since then continued to be a definition of Pyrenean Piedmont wines. The identity of the terroir, the method of cultivation, and the family's ambition undoubtedly forge the authenticity of the estate.
After having travelled the world and worked in vineyards all over the world, Franck, strengthened by his experiences, took over from his parents, Pierrette and Christian in 2014. Winegrowers and peasants from generation to generation, the Lehour family is an integral part of a history, a culture and an art of living that they are proud to represent!
An alchemy between modernity and tradition, Frank and his father cultivate 12 hectares of vines perched at an altitude of 300 metres, respecting the terroir and the vines that inhabit it. To control the diseases that threaten the plots each year, Frank and Christian feed the vines with manure, rocks and various plants. Naturalness is always a priority in order to obtain authentic wines!
No less than 14 micro plots, with each of the diversity of exposure, planting density and age, allow Frank and Christian to produce their precious vintages for our greatest pleasure!
