Domaine d Aupilhac

The Fadat family have been growing grapes for over 5 generations. Their naturally farmed vineyards are situated in four separate plots. A large part of the vines grow on south-west facing terraces on a site named Aupilhac. They’re mainly Mourvèdre and Carignan, but some Syrah, Grenache and Cinsault grow here too. Another part of the vineyard is the north-west facing Les Cocalières at an altitude of some 350m (1150ft) where Syrah predominates, though Mourvèdre and Grenache grow here too. The most northerly facing part is planted with the four white grapes recognized by the Coteaux du Languedoc: Roussanne, Marsanne, white Grenache and Rolle (Vermentino). Finally, the 'Plôs de Baumes' at Aniane, consists of terraces made up of gravel washed down by the Hérault river; it was owned by Sylvain’s maternal grandfather, Marcel Baumes, and so is named in his memory. These are delicious natural wines of great character. The fadat family mantra is the same as many natural vignerons; 'We believe that work in the vineyards has far more influence on a wine’s quality than what we do in the cave'.
