Domaine de la Dourbie is located in the heart of the Hérault Valley, at the foot of the Terrasses du Larzac. It takes its name from this small river, bordering the vineyard, which flows into the Hérault. The estate dates back to 1781, it is a family estate of 32 hectares that we have been restructuring with love and passion since 2003. Since then, we have focused on quality and authenticity with the uprooting of non-local grape varieties (Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon) and the relocation of indigenous varieties such as Terret-Bourret for example. Unlike the previous owners, we do everything on site (from the vine to the label). We have been in Organic Agriculture since 2009 and the vinification is done in the traditional way (indigenous yeasts, etc.). The grapes are harvested by hand in crates, followed by a sorting on the table (always by hand!). Our philosophy is to combine "traditional with modernity" by producing wines of pleasure and especially of sharing! The estate has two distinct terroirs. The first of 20 hectares in IGP d'Oc all around the estate, benefiting from a clayey-sandy soil, with a particular climate. A 5 hectare park classified as a "Remarkable Garden", bordered by 2 rivers, provides us with a unique biodiversity. The second, of 12 hectares in AOP Languedoc, is located on a magnificent microclimate in one of the most beautiful terroirs of Languedoc, a stone's throw from the village of Aniane, which is very well known for its Grand Cru. This pretty parcel on a single piece of hillside is composed only of old vines (50 to 80 years old) on a clayey-limestone soil, revealing sublime grapes when the harvest arrives.
Since 1781, the passion for vines and wine has driven the successive owners of the estate. The first owners created a park that is now classified as a "Remarkable Garden". Our predecessors undertook colossal work for the time by changing the course of the Dourbie in order to be able to plant vines all around the buildings. Since 2003, we have been striving to produce quality wines with the most traditional and organic vinification.
Throughout the seasons and the harvest, our passion for wine remains the same: "producing quality wines". We have therefore turned to organic farming. We hope to one day become one of the great wines of Languedoc. The notion of sharing and transmitting our know-how is very important to us, we will gladly welcome you every day to our estate. I still see myself in 2003 during our first harvest, we were not quite ready, we had received the stainless steel tanks just two days before the beginning. I let you imagine the panic but also the excitement that reigned then... Since then I reassure you we are much more organized and we no longer let ourselves be caught off guard.
