The vines of Maison Ventenac are planted on slopes at an altitude of 200 m and benefit from a very particular soil structure. It was formed 50 million years ago: a vein of white limestone, of lacustrine origin, from which the wines draw their mineral, salty and fresh side. About ten grape varieties flourish in this way...

Classified as AOC or IGP, all the plots are pampered in the same way, even if the heart of the Ramé family is inclined towards Cabernet Franc in red and Chenin in white. My first found here, terroir at its foot, in an elegant, rich, fine and very regular style. My second one was replanted to give top-of-the-range juices.

The entire vineyard is the subject of all the care and a more than rational approach since, beyond the Terra Vitis certification, the estate has committed itself to the method known as sexual confusion and the elimination of chemical inputs in the soil.

Our story

After taking over from Alain Maurel, Olivier and Stéphanie Ramé rethink the estate's wine-making activities and make the Maison Ventenac the flag bearer of the Cabardès appellation. In the vineyard as well as at home, the couple is working hard to restore the Languedoc appellation to its former glory, in memory of the work Stéphanie's father did with them.

Together, the couple, with their youth, innovate and refine the techniques of vineyard cultivation and winemaking. Olivier and Stephanie modernize and invest without counting to increase tenfold the quality of the wines they produce. Their common goal leads them in this work: to respect the land, going far beyond the specifications of their Terra Vitis certification.

Other little stories

After 3 years of experimentation, Olivier has just released a range of 4 vintages that express what he believes to be the soul of the House of Ventenac. They are called "Les Dissidents": very cheeky, numbered (2,500 to 6,000 bottles) and (de)classified as Vin de France.

Each one has its own character, with no make-up thanks to millimetre-scale breeding, carried out in 2,000-litre tuns or even 150 or 500-litre jars. In the key? Uncompromising, precise, straightforward juices.
