Products of the domain : Domaine de la Prose

The Domaine de la Prose takes place on a hill in the town of Pignan, near Montpellier. It covers 28 hectares, of which 17 are classified in the AOC Saint-Georges-d'Orques. The AOC Saint-Georges-d'Orques wine is a reference in the Languedoc wines, since it is one of the historic founding territories of the wines of the Mediterranean. The vineyards of the domaine de la Prose are set in a typical mediterranean setting of garrigue and oak. Facing the sea, the grape varieties grow on a clayey-limestone soil particularly stony which promotes the expression of the minerality. Founded in 1990 by Alexandre and Patricia de Mortillet, the Domaine de la Prose is now run by their son, Bertrand. He chose to cultivate his land in organic and biodynamic agriculture.


Wines from Languedoc Bio


Bertrand de Mortillet very early became interested in the foundations of biodynamic agriculture. The winemaker quickly realized that his terroir benefited from an exceptional situation, and made the choice to convert Domaine de la Prose into organic farming. The AOC Saint-Georges-d'Orques wines from the Prose domain are therefore produced without pesticides and synthetic chemicals. The work of the vine respects a balance between the soil and the grapes which allows the grape varieties to reveal wild aromas and spiciness characteristic.
