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 having taken over from Alain Maurel, Olivier and Stéphanie Ramé have rethought the estate's wine-making activity and made Maison Ventenac the flagship of the Cabardès appellation. In the vineyard as well as at home, the couple worked hard to restore the Languedoc appellation to its former glory, in memory of the work Stéphanie's father had done with them.

Together, the couple, with their youth, innovate and refine the techniques of vineyard cultivation and winemaking. Olivier and Stéphanie are modernizing and investing heavily to increase the quality of the wines they produce tenfold. Their common objective guides 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 thinks is the soul of the Maison Ventenac. They are called "Les Dissidents": very cheeky micro vintages, numbered (from 2,500 to 6,000 bottles) and (de)classified as Vin de France.

Each one has its own character, without make-up thanks to millimetric breeding, carried out in 2,000-litre tuns or even 150 or 500-litre jars. At the end of the day? Uncompromising juices, precise, direct.
