something
My family has been producing wine for over five generations. In the end of the XIX century, my ancestors were producing wine at Aupilhac and sending it all over France. When I launched the Domaine d'Aupilhac as an independent vigneron in 1989, I was also cultivating melons, asparagus, tomatoes and peaches; but since 1992, I was exclusively focused on vines. Between 1989 and 1992, vinification took place in old bowsers parked in the open air and I bottled the wines before the following summer! In 1993 I built a covered cellar equiped with more efficient equipment. 1997 saw the creation of large underground cellars to house the barrels and casks. In 1998 I decided to acquire some totally different land which had been cultivated two centuries earlier but long since abandoned. At an altitude of 350 metres, "les Cocalières", is a natural amphitheatre covered in wild garrigue. Two years later we built a bottling and storage unit. Our main grape varities are Mourvèdre and Carignan, Syrah, Grenache and Cinsault for the reds and the white grapes recognized by the Coteaux du Languedoc: Roussanne, Marsanne, white Grenache, Clairette and Rolle (Vermentino).
