Domaine de l'Allamande is a family business run by the Quiroga family. The parcels of the estate are rich and diverse, we are not talking about a Terroir but 3 Terroirs: Allamande: at an altitude of 400 metres, on a clayey-limestone soil, corresponding to the geological specificity of the Bandol terroir, facing due south towards the Golden Islands of Hyères and Porquerolles, surrounded by a classified wooded forest. Puget-Ville: on a stony clay soil from the Permian period. Collobrières: on a terroir made up of red earth. Each of these terroirs constitutes a richness and specificity to our wines. Our vintages are therefore made from parcel selections, in order to appreciate the richness that nature gives us. Harvesting is done manually, it is a titanic task, especially when working the parcel of land in Allamande, the hardest physically, on the hillsides, but giving an extraordinary minerality and complexity to our wines. Since its inception, the Domaine has been committed to producing wines that preserve Nature. Thus we use many processes to limit the impact of production on our terroir. The estate is moving towards organic farming production.
Passionate about his profession, Vincent, the youngest son, perpetuates the family tradition, the profession of winegrower. Before him, it was his grandmothers who made the wine, but in Champagne, this native of Hyères, a nature lover, vinified throughout many wine-growing regions of the world before taking over the Allamande estate... Today, Vincent is one of the youngest winegrowers in Var, his wines have won many awards, the most recent: Guide Hachette des Rosés 2017-2018 and Guide Hachette 2018-2019 ;Mâcon Competition, Gilbert and Gaillard Competition, Decanter Competition 2016, 2017 and 2018 (91 points). Selected among the 100 best rosés in Provence by the Guide de la Gastronomie et du Vin Guide Hubert 2016. And he doesn't intend to stop there!
For me, being a winegrower is the opportunity to perpetuate the family passion, to create Art from Nature, to produce wines that reflect the estate and my character, to share my passion for the land. I like to produce different wines, which correspond to me, but which also please my family and friends! My success is also due to my friends, my clients who support me.
The cuvée that would most closely resemble me is Triangle d'Or. With this cuvée I try to blend my grapes to obtain an aromatic complexity and a noble structure on the palate. For me it is my rosé of great gastronomy! All you have to do
is taste it and comment! An
anecdote about me; Even as a child, I used to have fun making my own wine from small winemaking kits.
I made micro vinifications and had my production tested by everyone around me! The marketing had to wait for the volume! Now I have the chance to have a fully equipped cellar and make my life-size assemblies! It's still more convenient! I like to produce my wine, it is my identity. I find that the relationship to the land, to wine, binds men.
For me, having a vineyard means sharing the culture of wine, defending the profession of winegrower, which is why I am committed to the Charter of Independent Winegrowers
