The Cabrol’s are a wine-growing family with a domaine that has been passed down for four generations. The domaine and its 17 hectares of vines are located in the small village of Castelnau de Guers, which is in the northern part of the Picpoul de Pinet AOC and is in the process of becoming a “cru village” of the Languedoc. The estate practices sustainable viticulture and is certified by Terra Vitis. In an appellation still dominated by co-operatives, it can be rare to encounter the wines of an artisan producer. Current custodian Marc practices very conscientious viticulture. Being a member of Terra Vitis is an indication that the team adhere to responsible, environmentally friendly practices and promote biodiversity within their estates. Their land is blessed with a number of natural advantages, most notably its proximity to the sea. Along with the Mediterranean climate and the fact that the team harvest at night to protect the aromas and freshness of the fruit, the wines from Cabrol are always well-balanced and gastronomically friendly.
