description

Situated between Bassin de Thau and hills of pines, the vineyard of La Croix Gratiot is on the village of Montagnac. The vines planted on a loamy-limestone soil profit from the marine trade winds and the scents of the scrubland. This microclimate allows the grapes to reach an optimal maturity and to fully express the typicity of the grapes varieties during the different process of winemaking.

The estates produce AOC Languedoc Picpoul de Pinet and IGP Pays Oc. Yves and Hugues own the vineyard for 25 years, and decided in 2004 to create the winery. Since 2007, their daughter Anaïs Ricome oversees the team for winemaking and sale of wine.
