Olivier and Stéphanie took over the vineyard from Stéphanie's parents. With their youth, they innovate and refine the techniques of vineyard cultivation and wine making. Sensitive to the respect of the earth and their environment, they have obtained a Terra Vitis certification and their vineyard is in organic conversion.
The idea behind each Maison Ventenac wine is to offer, as directly as possible, the aromatic expression of our Cabardès grapes. Too often, the word "terroir" has been overused, transgressed, misappropriated... Its meaning has been lost. So here, we're trying to put the church back in the middle of the village, to help people rediscover what wines that bear witness to their terroir really are. We want wines with identity! Assertive wines! Wines that aren't pretentious, but that don't lack pretension.
After 3 years of experimentation, Olivier has released a range of 4 cuvées (Paul, Patience, Puritaine and Candide) that express what he believes to be the soul of Maison Ventenac. They're called "Les Dissidents": very cheeky micro-cuvées, numbered (from 2,500 to 6,000 bottles) and (un)classified as Vin de France (Le Bâtard and La Culottée joined the gang in 2020), each with its own character, stripped of make-up thanks to meticulous ageing in 2,000-liter tuns or even 150- or 500-liter jars. The result? Uncompromising, precise, direct juices. An uppercut, but one that feels good! The one that wakes you up The one that tells you that everything is not standardized, that everything is not uniform but unique!
