About This Vineyard
Cazes is the largest biodynamic producer in France with no less than 200 hectares of organic vineyards, which produce 15 different wines every year. This diversification has been brought about in part by our desire to experiment and to learn, but above all by the wide variety of terroirs found in the region. Any short tour of the vast amphitheatre that makes up the Roussillon vineyards, bordered in the East by the Mediterranean, in the South by the Pyrénées and in the West by the hills of Corbières will reveal a multiplicity of soil types.
Sometimes blackish, because of schistous materials; sometimes white, when the soils are formed by limestone debris from the mountains; sometimes red, when clay dominates; sometimes yellow… these soils make up a wonderful mosaic, carpeting the hillsides and the steep mountain slopes.
We produce mainly AOC wines on the mid-slope terraces of the Vallée d’Agly, situated around the communes of Rivesaltes and of Salses-le-Château. We produce the following varietals: Syrah, Mourvèdre, Carignan, Grenache noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Tannat, and Cabernet Franc.
