Family owned – historic winemaking region – low yields
Château Les Ollieux Romanis
The region of Boutenac in the south of France has played host to winemaking estates since the time of the Romans. While the lineage of Château Les Ollieux Romanis doesn’t stretch back quite as far as that - it has been owned by the Bories family for generations - the estate continues to produce wines in a traditional manner that pays homage to the history of their region. From vines located on a sheltered hillside, the Ollieux Romanis team produce a range of wines that focus on the typical black grape varieties of this region; Carignan, Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre, along with the classic white varieties of Roussanne and Marsanne.
Corbieres Cuvée Alice 2017
