‘We ask no more of our vines than they give what they can and
respect their natural rhythms, in this way we hope to allow the terroir to best express itself.'
In the village of Montpeyroux the Giner family cultivate their vineyard of 12 hectares, Charles Giner and his daughter Anne Jeffroy aim to produce wines that reflect the richness of the ‘terroir' Based in a typical Languedocienne house dating from 1750 wines are created using the best of modern techniques with the traditions of the past. The vineyards consist of traditional Languedoc grape verities; carignan, grenache, syrah, cinsault for the reds, mourvedre, vermentino and marsanne for the whites.
Charles Giner and Raymond Fobis before him resisted over the years the trend for destroying and replanting the carignan vines. Thanks to their care and attention these vines are now between 65 and 80 years old.
