Everything here exudes respect and love for vegetation: the vines flourish and show off their emerald colours on living, lightly harrowed soil; healthy, well-spaced fruit thrives under the shade of its leafy shelter, and carefully considered, measured viticulture is practised with intelligence and style, following the principles of organic agriculture.
GEOGRAPHY

WHERE TWO WORLDS CONVERGE

The extreme south of the Rhône Valley on one side. The northern tip of Provence on the other. And in between, Château la Verrerie stands on the edges of these two worlds, spanning 150 ha, 54 ha of which are under vine. Limestone clay soil, the stony scree of the Luberon massif, slopes enjoying southern exposure and vine stock planted in the direction of the mistral distinguish this AOC Luberon and IGP Vaucluse terroir. It is truly unique.
GRAPE VARIETIES

TASTES AND COLOURS

It has inherited two cultures, and Château la Verrerie brings them together. Its thirty year-old vines offer an extraordinary diversity of grapes. There are 45 ha of red grape vineyards, on which flourish structuring Provençal Grenache (53%), thrilling Syrah (36%); light Cinsault (8%), and lively Carignan (3%). In terms of white grapes, there is just as much diversity over the 9.8 ha that are given over to their production. There is wonderfully floral Viognier (38%), fresh and rare Bourboulenc (30%), fine Clairette (12%), smooth Roussanne (11%) and opulent White Grenache (9%).
VITICULTURE

NATURE GUIDES OUR HAND

Respect for our terroir guides our work. And always has. We set about converting the Domaine to organic agriculture very early on. But it's not just about the label. The decision to practice organic agriculture came about through our love for the plant kingdom, and for the Luberon parc naturel régional which borders our Domaine. From our rejection of synthetic or chemical products to our painstaking pruning process to limit the number of bunches; from ensuring they are perfectly spaced to controlling leaf thining, our full scope of expertise goes into growing high quality grapes of ideal freshness. Not forgetting that we do not irrigate or water the vineyards, we only use natural soil-enrichment agents, and harvest the reds by hand, machine-harvest the roses and some of the whites at night, always at optimum ripeness. We are devoted to responsible viticulture.
