Take a walk on the wild side...
Zélige-Caravent began life in 1999 with three hectare of vines in Chemin de la Gravette a small village in the Languedoc, at the foot of the Cèvennes. Today the domaine comprises 15 hectare, made up of 25 different plots, and offers a wide range of different grape varieties native to the Languedoc including, Aramon, Alicante, Cinsault, Carignane, Grenache, Mourvedre and Syrah.
In the vineyard, all vines are pruned by hand, the rows are tilled by horse and all treatments are organic. In the cellar, only indigenous yeasts are used, manual pressing and no treatments other than sulfur at a level lower or equal to 30mg/liter at bottling. The assemblage of each wine changes every year. The estate is now certified biodynamic by Demeter.
