Mas Farchat is located in the Languedoc vineyard on the terroir of Pézenas. We practice a reasoned culture in order to respect the nature in which the fauna and flora flourish. We spread horse composted manure, fed exclusively with Crau hay, which brings richness to the soil we want alive! We only have small plots, from 30 ares to 1.5 hectares for the larger ones, which makes manual work easier, which is very important on our estate, especially the grape harvest, as our plots are planted on sunny slopes, they produce little but it is our will: quality prevails over quantity.
When I took over the reins of the estate I embarked on the exciting adventure of winemaking since my father was a cooperator. I wanted to create wines that had the identity of their terroir, so I leave this basalt terroir, which is the typicity of our AOC, to produce wines with aromas of red, black and spicy fruits with very little involvement in winemaking... My second wish was to associate my childhood passion, the horse, with my profession! This is done since the estate carries the breeding affix of my first horse and a cuvée has even taken its name: Rouky de Farchat. my pride is to have seen the first vintage of my Genèse cuvée referenced in a gourmet restaurant, a great encouragement for the future. The 2017 harvest allowed me to develop my range of wines, in particular with the birth of a white AOC wine: L'Ecrin Blanc.
2018 is the year of development, in fact a gravity cellar has just emerged from the ground to allow me to vinify new and beautiful vintages!
Being a winegrower means putting a vine plan in the ground, waiting 3 years for him to give us his first harvest and waiting several more years for him to offer us great wines. In the meantime, it took a lot of hard work and patience.
Trust nature, the land and yourself for all the choices it implies.
I like wines that have a beautiful aromatic complexity, that you have to pamper and know how to wait to be able to tell this beautiful story to my customers.
Coming from winegrower families, I have always known this environment and was introduced to wine at a very young age, it certainly has its place on all our tables!
