Château de Caraguilhes

Since Greek merchants first introduced the cultivation of vines to the Languedoc more than 2,000 years ago, the Corbières region has been a prime region for wine making. In 1958, Lionel Faivre, an Algerian wine maker took over Caraguilhes with the ambition of making authentic wine with organic grapes. An environmentalist, Lionel pioneered natural farming and wine-making practices by employing sustainable organic techniques. His refusal to use chemical fertilizers, herbicides and insecticides was almost unheard of at the time. Nearly thirty years later, he completed the final transformation of Caraguilhes into full organic production.

Today it is owned by Pierre Gabison who is incredibly passionate about Caraguilhes and is focused on producing top quality wines from healthy vines, a pure expression in the bottle of the vineyard’s unique terroir. Caraguilhes vineyards have been committed to full organic farming since 1987. With this early awareness of the need to respect the earth and its terroir, our soils and vines have evolved to become richer and healthier. With healthier soils and healthier vines, we are growing better quality fruit, which in turn allows us to make better quality wine.

The organic wines do not use pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers. We use only environmentally-friendly methods and resources to grow our grapes, such as natural pest and weed control. Plants other than vines are grown in and around our vineyards to maintain and improve biodiversity and soil structure.
