Since Greek merchants first introduced the cultivation of vines to the area more than 2,000 years ago, the Corbières region in Languedoc, south of France, has been intrinsically linked with wine growers and the making of wine. Recognizing the ideal grape growing conditions in Corbières, in the 12th Century, the monks of the Cistercian Order undertook the task of developing viniculture in the region. These monks were renowned as highly skilled wine growers. They worked wonders, and as a result, their agricultural domains became very prosperous. One of these domains was our Caraguilhes.

From the beginning, Caraguilhes covered an area of some 600 unbroken hectares. Remarkably, over the course of history, the domain of Caraguilhes has remained intact. Centuries later, in 1958, Lionel Faivre, an established wine grower in Algeria, took over Caraguilhes with a vision to make 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. By 1998, Lionel, growing old, decided he could not leave the daunting task of caring for the vast Caraguilhes domain to his children and regretfully made the decision to sell the vineyard. He met Pierre Gabison and an associate and believed that their partnership could succeed in carrying on the proud tradition of high quality organic wine-making he started 40 years earlier.

In 2005, Pierre Gabison took over sole ownership of the business. With a love for wine and a genuine devotion for Caraguilhes and the region, Pierre is currently committing a renewed passion and the essential resources to the vineyard and to the Château. Pierre’s aim is to produce uncompromising quality wine from healthy vines which offer a natural expression of the domain’s unique terroir.
 
  Specialties

Our 135 hectares of vineyards are strategically surrounded and protected by 500 hectares of scrubland, with a rich ecosystem in a unique setting.

Located about 30 kilometers from the Mediterranean Sea, with a height of 100 to 180 meters, the vineyard Caraguilhes is exposed to northwest winds (Tramontana), which protects the vines in a natural way to fungal diseases (fungi) and insect pests. This wind also causes a pleasant coolness in the vineyard during the hot summer days, which greatly helps to maintain the level of acidity in the grapes and ensure a fuller and slower maturation.

The great diversity of soil: clay, sulfur, limestone and pebbles, as well as the different exposures of the vineyards, creating ideal conditions for production. Each plot has a unique character and we try to make the best out of this diversity to express our grapes and our wines. For our red wines, we use the following grape varieties: Syrah, Carignan, Grenache Noir, Mourvedre, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Alicante; and for our white wines: White Grenache, Roussanne and Marsanne.

Caraguilhes is a dreamland for every winemaker. The diversity of grape varieties and climatic conditions offers us a variety of flavors, colors and extremely rich aromas that allow us to create unique assemblies, which fully express complexity and characteristics of our different terroirs.

Corbières

A.O.C. Corbières

The Corbières is one of the wildest areas of France with one of the lowest population densities. It is picturesque with wine growing areas alternating with garigue and mountainous countryside. It is located mainly in the Aude département and partly in the Pyrénées-Orientales département. The River Aude borders the Corbières to the west and north. To the south is the River Agly and to the east the the Mediterranean Sea. The name Corbières comes from "cor" a pre-Celtic word meaning "rock" and "berre" from the River Berre which runs through Durban. The eastern part of the Corbières with its Etangs, borders the the Mediterranean Sea and is called the Corbières maritimes. It has its own distinctive climate and characteristic vegetation known as thermomediterranean vegetation...

St Laurent
de la Cabrerisse

Rivière de St Laurent de la Cabrerisse

Amidst a magnificent landscape of vineyards, pine forests, olive trees and garrigue (Mediterranean scrubland), our village stretches along the river Nielle. Ideally located between Carcassonne and its famous fortified cité and Narbonne with both a remarkable cathedral and relaxing beaches to offer, our village deserves its double “label” of “Gate of the Hautes Corbieres” as well as “ Heart of the Corbieres-Minervois country”. You are only a few minutes away from Lagrasse, which abbey and middle-age cobbled streets have earned it a place on the list of France’s most beautiful villages. And there is plenty more to see : the abbeys of Fontfroide and Caunes Minervois are well worth a visit, not to forget the Cathar history of the region with the castles of Termes, Villerouge Termenes, Aquilair, Minerves and many more “vertigo citadels” all within a short drive of the village. The Canal du Midi and the Cité of Carcassonne are both inscribed on the Unesco World Heritage List. They offer beautiful opportunities for a half-day or daytrip in the sun....

Lagrasse

Lagrasse

Officially designated ‘One Of The Most Beautiful Villages In France’, Lagrasse nestles at the confluence of two valleys in the stunning Corbières wine region of the South of France. The village is linked to the 8th century Benedictine abbey to which it owed its original prosperity by two graceful bridges spanning the river. Between Carcassonne and Narbonne, Lagrasse is set in the Orbieu valley, in the Corbieres massif. The Orbieu river separates the abbey, rising over the left bank, from the village which spreads along the right bank and is listed as one of the most beautiful villages of France. The foundation charter of the Benedictine Abbey of Sainte Marie de l'Orbieu dates from the end of the 8th century, even if another building probably existed on the site before the Carolingian period...

Narbonne

Narbonne

Narbonne, France is a charming small city in the Languedoc, featuring wonderful historic attractions as well as a relaxing beach along the Mediterranean. The heart of Narbonne, once a key port for the Roman Empire, is the dramatic Place de l'Hotel de Ville. Also be sure to stroll through the village’s old town, where you can’t miss the main attraction: Cathedrale Saint-Just. The most dominant building in this neighborhood, the 13th century church connects to the Palais des Archevêques, which has an ornately carved 130-meter keep. The Horreum, the only significant ancient Roman relic in the city, is an intricate underground series of hallways and tunnels which is believed to have been used for grain storage. Open year-round, it closes Mondays from October through May. Also of interest is the Musee de Telephone, with exhibits on the history of communications, including telegraphs and, of course, the telephone. Be sure to visit Narbonne Plage (beach), which you can reach from the train station and several points in central Narbonne through the 'TUN' bus line. The beach area features boutiques and outdoor cafés.
