AOP COTES DU ROUSSILLON
Since 1930, this family winery has combined wine excellence and vineyard beauty. At the foot of the Massif des Albères and overlooking the sea, the 24 hectare estate produces Côtes du Roussillon, Muscat de Rivesaltes and Rivesaltes wines.
The castle “Chateau Valmy” was built between 1888 and 1900 by the Danish architect Viggo Dorph Petersen. Its glazed tiles, white walls and turrets give free rein to dreams and fairy tales.
Produced in the characteristic tradition of this wine estate, they are aimed at a clientele in love with « convivial » wines.
The new cellar of the vineyard opened its doors in early July 2013. The cellar benefits from advanced technological know-how for an efficient vinification but also a traditional winery in barrels and in oak barrels.
The tasting place offers a range of AOP and Vin de Pays (red and rosé) in an exceptional environment, full of serenity.
From the top of the patio, sea and vineyard mix to make your tasting a unique moment. Before leaving the estate, carefully observe the rows of vines. The color of the roses at the head of the row gives the indication of the robe of the wine!
LE PREMIER DE VALMY : Grenache noir, Mourvèdre, Syrah
The plots where the berries of Syrah, Mourvedre and Grenache noir are the most concentrated are used for elaborating this iconic cuvée
