The wines

All our wines are made with the same commitment; although each come from a singular motivation. On the one hand, there is a deep attachment to the Jurançon territory, through its history and the one of our castle. But there is also the possibility of the evolution of this territory, hence the need to produce wines both within the Jurançon Appellation, and outside of this framework. That is why we offer two wine families today: AOC wines, biodynamic, and more personal, free, or natural wines. Our wines offers a wide range of emotions where each one can find his pleasure.
