Fully certified as organic since 2014, Celine and Harry purchased this 115-hectare estate in 2017.A total renovation of the winery and buildings is underway with a view to expressing the full potential of this terroir both from a winemaking and a tourism perspective. Silence is king at La Mongestine and the animals and flora live in harmony among the rows of healthy and vigorous vines. Most of the vintages are vinified without inputs.

Our story

For the record, Mongestine, the name of the hillside on which the estate is located, in the commune of Artigues, comes from the word "Monge" meaning "Monk" in Provençal and Occitan. The land has therefore been inhabited and worked for a long time and yet the estate was entirely replanted in 2001, the date of the foundation of its current form, after having been left practically abandoned for 40 years. Bought back in January 2017 by Celine and Harry, it is getting a whole new lease on life with a young and forward-thinking team. A total renovation of the winery and buildings is underway in order to express the full potential of this terroir both from a wine and tourism perspective. Silence is king at La Mongestine and the animals and flora live in harmony among the rows of healthy and vigorous vines.

Entirely organic since 2014, with natural vinification methods and very little or no sulfites, the vineyard covers a total area of 120 ha, including 30 ha of vines. Its location on hillsides in the foothills has generated very varied soils, clay-limestone on the bottom, very stony at the foot of the hill, with some sandy and gravelly areas. The diversity and the quality of the grape varieties favor the complexity of the vintages, whether they are PGI or PDO Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence. The vinification process is based on natural fermentations, with very few inputs, a strong control of temperatures, and maturation ranging from barrels to concrete eggs depending on the cuvée.

Other little stories

To be a winegrower in Mongestine is to defend a territory and the values of sharing nature. The Monks understood this a long time ago, and the earth has kept the memory of these centuries of history: this is what we strive to express through our wines...
