Tuesday Tasting

Domaine de l'Hortus - Languedoc Roussillon

Tuesday 11 March

The Orliac family describe themselves as "lovers of a job well done and hitting the nail on the head".
In the 1970s, Jean and Marie-Thérèse came to the Combe de Fambétou, in the heart of the Pic Saint-Loup AOC, with the conviction that it was possible to produce great wines in the Languedoc Roussillon region. In the beginning, there was no vineyard to speak of in this ruggedly beautiful valley between the cliffs and the garrigue scrublands. The couple patiently cleared and planted sixty hectares of vineyards over thirty years' time. It took ten whole years of work to produce their first vintage, in 1990. Since then, the Domaine de l'Hortus has been making a significant contribution to the reputation of Pic Saint-Loup wines.
Today, their children - Marie, François, Yves and Martin - have succeeded to the estate and continue to operate with the same determination. 
Domaine de l'Hortus offers a wholehearted, genuine tasting of several vintages of each of the wines it produces: Grande Cuvée de l'Hortus in red and white, and Bergerie de l'Hortus in red, white and rosé.

With these sessions, we have created a unique opportunity for you to meet the people who create our selection of wines. They are privileged, intimate occasions where the wine-makers share their savoir-faire and transmit their love of the land.

They are ideal opportunities to perfect your learning into a specific area ; a particular grape, a particular region, a certain technique... For each theme, we find the ideal, most qualified person to answer all your questions.
