Story: Mourgues was originally a Provençal name for Ursuline nuns, the farm originally having belonged to a convent near the village of Beaucaire. With Mont Ventoux visible from the top of the vineyard slopes this is a region that feels closer to Provence or the Rhône than the Languedoc.

The sun shines all year long, ensuring that the grapes reach op mum maturity. Two winds adjust the climate; Southern breezes in August refresh the leaves and relieve the vines during the hottest days while the Northern wind, The Mistral, is a precious health-bringing ally for environmentally-friendly vineyards. Cold and dry, it dries out the vines.

Named a er “Les Grès” a specific terroir of covered by “galet roulés”, or sandstones, coming from a glacial moraine that was deposited along the Rhône river. Consequently, Costières de Nîmes has a substantial layer of “grès” that superimposed on a subsoil of calcareous clay and limestone.

Leaf thinning, green harvest as necessary, organic solutions, working the soil using natural products.

  • Hand-picking is for the steepest slopes and mechanical harvest on the plateau

  • Neutral yeasts
  • All in tank
  • Temperature control
