Created in 2004 on the steep hillside of the oldest bastide in the Landes, Les Pentes de Barène has the particularity of being a domain, a parcel, and only a cuvée. It is indeed the smallest estate in the Tursan AOC! This slope is very clayey and the steep slope that makes up the estate as indicated by its name has led Daniel to build terraces in order to make the vines benefit as much as possible from the south-facing exposure. These steep slopes also allow water flows to be distributed because rains are frequent and can be abundant; thus soil erosion and leaching are limited.

The vineyard is only made up of white grape varieties, because it is the original colour of Tursan wines, and also with a rare grape variety, the Baroque. All work on the vine up to the harvest is done by hand, the soils are grassed and mowed. The vineyard is managed according to a rational agricultural method in order to reconcile production and limiting the supply of products.

Our story

Daniel, an agricultural engineer, has always dreamed of being able to do what his father did: buy a small vineyard in order to have the vines in front of his house and invite his friends for the harvest. It's done! It's done!

The adventure began in 2003, when, looking for a house with his wife and children in the South-West, he came across the estate Les Pentes de Barène. Once the project had been validated by the whole family, he settled down and began work on the vines with one goal in mind: to produce a good, elegant and distinctive wine to enhance the identity of the region's grape variety, the Baroque.

Other little stories

This domain was an event in the village, first a new couple with children coming, then a project that perpetuates their installation... It was then that, as in the past, people volunteered for the plantation! It was like the harvest: all together around the vine and wine!

The curiosity was all the more aroused by the fact that the project included a cellar, which meant that the wine would be made on site! This is unusual in Tursan since today, more than 95% of the vine surface belongs to the cooperative cellar, there are only four independent winegrowers! The villagers have thus found their vintage of yesteryear, typical of the region, almost as before...
