Maison Ventenac

(57 ratings)
In the Heart of Cabardès

Located next to the Montagne Noire, in the foothills of the Massif Central, the Maison Ventenac vineyard is located 10 km from Carcassonne, in the heart of the Cabardès AOC. The vines planted on hillsides at an altitude of 200 m benefit from a very particular soil structure, formed 50 million years ago: a vein of white limestone, of lacustrine origin, in which the wines from the Puisen region are planted.

Located next to the Montagne Noire, in the foothills of the Massif Central, the Maison Ventenac vineyard is located 10 km from Carcassonne, in the heart of the Cabardès AOC. The vines planted on hillsides at an altitude of 200 m benefit from a very particular soil structure, 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 identically, 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

Following in Alain Maurel's footsteps, Olivier and Stéphanie Ramé led a resounding revolution and made the family estate of Ventenac the driving force behind the Cabardès appellation. A couple in the city as well as in the vineyard, Olivier and Stéphanie Ramé have indeed come a long way since they took over the estate created by Alain Maurel, Stéphanie's father. The young couple goes fast, rationalizes, sharpens methods in the vineyard and in the cellar, modernizes, invests and spends countless hours to improve the quality of its wines. With an objective that goes hand in hand: respect for the land, well beyond 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.
