AOP LANGUEDOC

 

ORGANIC WINE


4 centuries of history...

Making wine at La Dourbie is a philosophy which is illustrated in the places and the work method as well on the level of the wine as of its marketing. 

Respect of the tradition and the ancestral knowledge of wine growing:   Sustainable viticulture, manual grape harvest and traditional methods of vinification illustrate the policy of the owner.

Modernity and dynamism for marketing: a classical approach but also modern, intimist and contemporary, on a sober and purified style.
