The idea behind each Ventenac wine is to offer as directly as possible, without artifice, the aromatic expression of our Cabardès grapes.

Too many times the word "terroir" has been abused, transgressed, misused... We have lost its meaning.
So here, we are trying to put the church back in the middle of the village, to help people rediscover what wines are really about, as witnesses of their terroir. But be careful! Not the good old deviant, dubious terroir, which sniffs "papi's cap"! No! The Syrah of Ventenac must taste like no other. Just like its Cabernet Franc or its Chenin.

We want wines with identity! Wines that are assertive!
Wines that are not pretentious but that do not lack pretension.



Our story

After taking over from his father-in-law, Olivier and Stéphanie, his wife, have rethought the estate's viticultural activity and have made Maison Ventenac the flagship of the Cabardès appellation. In the vineyard as well as at home, the couple works hard to give back its letters of nobility to the Languedoc appellation, by breaking the codes and redoubling their inventiveness.

Together, the young and dynamic couple innovates and refines the techniques of vineyard cultivation and wine making. Olivier and Stéphanie modernize and invest without counting the cost, to increase the quality of the wines they produce. A common objective leads them in this work: to respect the earth, by going even further than the specifications of organic viticulture.

Other little stories

After 3 years of experimentation, Olivier has brought out a range of 4 cuvées (Paul, Patience, Puritaine and Candide) which express what he believes to be the soul of the Ventenac House. They are called "Les Dissidents": very cheeky micro-cuvées, numbered (at a rate of 2,500 to 6,000 bottles) and (un)classified as Vin de France (Le Bâtard and La Culottée joined the band in 2020).

Each one has its own character, without any make-up thanks to the meticulous maturing process, carried out in 2,000-litre tuns or even in 150 or 500-litre jars. The result? Uncompromising, precise and direct juices. An uppercut, but one that feels good! The one that wakes up the one that tells you that everything is not standardized, that everything is not uniform but unique!
