Entirely organic since 2014, with natural winemaking methods and very little or no sulfite, the vineyard covers a total area of 120 ha, including 30 ha of vines. Its location on hillsides in the foothills of the Piedmont region has generated very varied soils, clay-limestone at the bottom, very stony at the foot of the hill, with some sandy and gravelly areas. The diversity and quality of the grape varieties favours the complexity of the cuvées, whether they are PGI or Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence PDO protected designation of origin. Vinification is based on natural fermentation, with very little input, strong temperature control, and maturing varying from barrel to concrete egg depending on the cuvée.

Our story

For the record, Mongestine, the name of the slope on which the estate is established, on the territory of 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 completely replanted in 2001, the date of its foundation in its present form, after having been practically abandoned for 40 years. Bought back in January 2017 by Celine and Harry, it benefits from a brand new impetus with a young and avant-garde team. A total renovation of the winery and buildings is underway to express the full potential of this terroir both from a winemaking point of view but also from a tourist point of view. Silence is king à la Mongestine and animals and flora live in harmony amidst the rows of healthy and vigorous vines.

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...
