This pre-romanesque priory of the X century located on a south-facing slope, was
acquired by Emilien Raissac, Claire Barsalou's great-grand-father. Here, the shiraz
vines flourish and are ideal for making fine and harmonious wines. The calcareous
sandstone soil forces the vines to sink their roots deeply in order to find a right
water balance. Aging through the centuries, the old olive trees planted by our predecessors
still shade the borders of the vineyard. The association of olives and wine is an
ancient tradition from the roman period and a symbol of our mediterranean culture.
