Winery Description

The estate is located in the southern part of the Languedoc, in the famous St Chinian appellation. Domaine Navarre is an exception in the wine world, thanks to him we are able to try grapes that doesn’t exist anymore.

The Terroir
This is a 12 hectares’ estate on brown schist, surrounded by small Mediterranean trees, thyme and garrigue. Vines are grown in the respect of nature, natural cycles and earth.

Grapes
Wines under AOP Saint Chinan are bauhysed on Grenaches, Carignan, Cinsault and Syrah. But you will be able to discover some forgotten grapes such as Oeillade (a cousin of Cinsault) and Ribeyrenc. Ribeyrenc is one of the oldest grapes from Languedoc that dispersed after phylloxera crisis.

Oeillade

The wine making process
No chemicals are allowed in the vines or in the cellar. The treatments used are based on plants, the soil is ploughed and the harvest is manual with a small team of 7 people.

Thierry Navarre
Thierry Navarre is the third generation to make wine. His passion for plants and especially vines bring him to make different wines from what we used to drink. He likes to share this passion with friends and good food.
