Introduced by Greek merchants from the 2nd century BC. JC, the vine did not really develop until the Roman occupation. The conditions were so favorable that the Narbonnaise viticulture put off the “Italian” owners, urging the emperor to limit production.
For centuries, the vine has been part of the DNA of Château de Lastours, anchored in the territory of the Corbières Maritimes, a stronghold in the wine world since Antiquity. Today, the Domaine has around 100 hectares of vines surrounded by the Corbières scrubland. Château de Lastours is planning to develop its vineyard by planting new plots to diversify its grape variety.
Thanks to innovations and the particular passion brought to the vineyard and to the vinification, the Languedoc identity of Château de Lastours is revealed in the fruit and finesse.
