After lunch in La Clape we joined the A9 and travelled north to Sommieres here we visited yet another new winery to us.
Brice Jourdan son of the owner at Château l’Argentiers had contacted us in the UK and sent us samples of their wines, we were impressed by their quality so decided that a visit to the vineyard was essential.
This is a medium sized family owned business, some of the vines are over 50 years old which are still producing lovely wines giving quality not quantity!
After the tasting we decided to add their Rosé to our list, the wine is made with an unusual grape called Aramon, it is native to the area and makes a delicious rosé.
Here they make the most of modern methods but also use a de-stemming machine which was manufactured in the 1950’s - still working well it is very gentle on the grapes and causes minimum damage so why change!
