About This Vineyard

Domaine Canet Valette is run organically by Marc Valette, a young vigneron who worked his first vintage in 1992. Marc’s first exposure to wine was through his grandfather, who had tended vines and made wine in Minervois. In 1975 Marc and his father began to purchase vineyards, starting with an overgrown and neglected 11 hectares, the first task being to rescue these vines from the weeds and encroaching vegetation.

Like many, the grapes they grew went to the local co-operative, but in 1992 they rented a winery and vinified the wine themselves. Marc’s passion for his wine grew, and in 1998 he invested a considerable amount of money in building his own winery and cellar. Equipped with stainless steel for fermentation on the upper level, the wine is run to the lower barrel cellar by gravity. In the meantime, the domaine has grown in size to 18 hectares on argilo-calcaire soil just outside the village of Cessenon.
