We are currently working in "organic" on 10 hectares and are gradually returning to the farming methods of our ancestors (abandoning chemicals, working the soil, shredding wood...) as indicated by our "Backwards" cuvée. To the south of the Nîmes coastal areas, the estate covers 64 hectares, 50 hectares of which are used for vine growing and 14 hectares composed of woods, hedges and olive trees contribute directly to the balance of the terroir.
Rolled pebble soils allow water to infiltrate directly into the pebble layer and form a discontinuous groundwater table. The vines thus have access to a regular water supply, which prevents summer drought and gives a very varied grape variety. All these advantages make it possible to offer many single varietal vintages: Syrah, Grenache, Carignan, Merlot, Alicante, Cinsault and Sangiovese.
In 1915, Frédéric Coste bequeathed 36 hectares of vines to his daughter and her husband, Arthur Delon. This is the beginning of a great evolution since over the generations, the vineyard has grown by more than 30 hectares. From 1915 to 1999, my ancestors; Raoul, Philippe and Nicole Soyris Delon, my mother, all participated in the expansion of the estate. I then decided to take over and continue the family adventure, it was in 2008 that my husband decided to leave his profession as a wine merchant to join me. The result of this union, in addition to our two daughters, will be 11 vintages, most of which will be grown in mono-varietal and organic varieties.
Qualify our wines as "Organic without inputs" because we work our wines naturally and the estate is currently in "organic" on 10 hectares and let's gradually return to the farming methods of our ancestors (this means abandoning the use of chemical products, better soil work, wood crushing...) as indicated by our vintage "Reverse step".
