Domaine Montrose was founded in 1701 when the King's adviser, Louis XIV, attributed the coat of arms of the "Trois Lézards" to the ancestors of Bernard and Olivier. Since then, this family has cultivated the land of Montrose with respect for future generations.
Montrose is committed to preserving the biodiversity of its terroir Since the estate's creation in 1701, our family has cultivated the Montrose lands with love, to pass them on to future generations. For decades, each edge of the vines was planted with local fruit trees to maintain the slopes and to feed people. Today, we understand how biodiversity also helps us to cultivate our land with respect for the environment. In 2012, with the help of scientists, we studied the fauna and flora of the Montrose vineyard. Then, we planted 1053 trees of 21 Mediterranean species: olive trees, almond trees, oaks, quince trees, wild apple trees, strawberry trees, laurel trees... Our family lives in Montrose and we do our best to maintain a healthy environment. 100% of the fertilizers we use are organic. In the autumn, we incorporate the grape marc into the soil to lighten and nourish it. We use mechanical tools to remove weeds. Why are we not certified? Organic farming allows the use of copper and sulphur to control pests. They must be used frequently and in large quantities to be effective. We use them when appropriate, but we prefer to add chemistry at low doses to reduce total inputs and better preserve the environment. The elegance and authenticity of Montrose wines comes from this harmony between the diversity of the terroirs, the benefits of the Mediterranean climate and the know-how acquired by our family over the generations.
"Having grown up at the Domaine, I have always been passionate about vine growing and wine making. Over time I have deepened my knowledge in this field, so that I can cultivate a high quality grape while respecting nature and biodiversity. My goal: to make elegant and fresh wines that reflect our terroir."
"Share. For us, it is above all wine. Let's not forget that we never drink alone!"
