The passion for the vine and wine is a family affair for Maurice Piccinini who knew how to transmit his art and his know-how to his son Jean-Christophe. Benefiting from the precious lessons of his father, Jean-Christophe made a dream come true in 1991, by allowing Domaine Piccinini to see the light of day in a private cellar.

Located north-east of the Minervois in the Petit Causse area, leaning against the foothills of the southern slope of the Montagne Noire, the Piccinini Estate enjoys maximum sunshine, typical of the Mediterranean climate.
Domaine Piccinini - La Livinière
On the terroir of La Livinière and planted with vines up to 60 years old, the Domaine Piccinini covers 40 hectares. The old cellar of this estate is located on the moat, while being attached to the wall of the former Château de la Livinière. Exposed to the north in the basement, it allows good humidity in addition to not be subject to temperature variations.

Domaine Piccinini currently produces more than 120,000 bottles, including around 84,000 in red, 24,000 white and 12,000 bottles in rosé. The red wines of AOP origin come from destemmed grapes then vinified at full maturity. The Minervois La Livinière "Clos l'Angely" and "Cuvée Line et Laëtitia" reds are made from selections of old vines and long macerations intended for aging in barrels.

  Born in Ariège, Maurice worked in the vineyard at a very young age with an aunt in La Livinière. Forced to abandon his studies, he learned "on the job" and often "the hard way", the profession of winemaker. His progress in the field was rapid and he soon became in charge of a small field known in the region as a manager where long weeks of work await him. Passionate and talented, this young winemaker becomes president of the cooperative cellar of La Livinière where he infuses the same dynamism that drives him, always knowing how to enrich himself with the experience of elders as well as advice from professionals and winemakers. . A forerunner, Maurice Piccinini has the ambition to obtain recognition for Cru La Livinière with the precious collaboration of Mr. Piquet from Château Gourgazaud. Both determined, they bring together a core of motivated co-operators. A dedication and an unwavering will will make them see the birth of the AOC Cru La Livinière, on September 10, 1998. With his vast expertise of over 35 years, both as an administrator and as a winemaker, Maurice Piccinini has helped to give the Minervois and especially the wines of La Livinière, their image of quality increasingly recognized in the wine sector .

A native of La Livinière, he followed his father very young in all activities related to the vine. In the company of this one, Jean-Christophe thus benefits from an environment favorable to the assimilation of all that relates to the wine culture and this, as well on the theoretical side as practical of the profession of winemaker. Jean-Christophe was only 21 years old when he decided to take the full-time jump into the winegrower profession. He will however pose only one condition, that is to have a personal cellar with his father Maurice...

Minervois

A.O.P. Minervois

The Minervois is one of the most ancient vineyards of the Mediterranean region. Indeed, its land was chosen by the Romans as providing ideal conditions for the first vines they planted in Languedoc Roussillon. Its name comes from the ancient city of Minerve, a stronghold built by the Romans and dedicated to the goddess Minerva. Since that time, many amphora shards and vestiges of cellars have been discovered, testimony to the importance of this vineyard. The region, austere in winter and redolent with sunshine in summer, has survived over the centuries its invasions by barbarians, Arabs and Christians. The essence of Minervois la Livinière, as in so many Midi appellations, is the blend; a marriage of different grape varieties that adds subtle nuance of flavour to the whole. Natural alcohol level must reach a minimum of 12% without enrichment (so no chaptalisation) and maximum yield is a modest 45 hl/ha. Ageing may be in barrel or vat, and unlike basic Minervois, the wine must be bottled at source, so cannot be sent off to a négociant elsewhere in France...


The Grapes

The Grapes

There are thousands of grape varieties contributing to a vast array of different wine styles with each variety having its own distinct flavours and characteristics. Varieties can be made uniquely to make a wine, in whch case the wine is known as a varietal, or collectively with other varities, when the wine is known as a blend. The soils and ‘terroirs’ in the Aude area are very varied, from Schist, Sandstone, Marl, Gravel, Pebbles, Limestone, to Granit and Alluvial soil; thus making many marvelous and different styles of wine. Also in this massive area are many different grape varieties, the reds include Carignon, Cinsault, Granache Noir, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot. The whites, Chardonnay, Granache blanc, Picpoul, Marsanne, Roussanne, Vermantino, Mauzac, Chenin and Clairette...

La Curiosité de L'Auriol (Lauriole)

La Curiosité de L'Auriol (Lauriole)

The Curiosité de Lauriole is not a place where you can find something to buy or other interesting things, no it's really an insignificant piece of road with only an optical illusion. When we were there for the first time we looked everywhere for something special but did not find anything. After a little search on google we found an interpretation of this phenomenon. What you have to do to find the cache is just to find out the secret of the Curiosité de Lauriole. You can put your car at one of this coordinates and just set your gear in the free and leave the breaks... because of the optical illusion you will think the car goes that direction but it's not!!!


La Cave des Vignerons - Siran

La Cave des Vignerons - Siran



La Cave des Vignerons in Siran has experienced a kind of renaissance with the installation of a wine bar in the property formerly dedicated to wine and winemaking. Long ago left to its fate, la Cave came back to life under the guidance of Sabine and Patrick, who wanted to turn it into a meeting place and a cozy place with wine and varied cuisine, inspired by the inspiration of the chef and the seasons... Wine bar, restaurant and concert hall, this former cooperative winery takes in part of its soul while remaining in the spirit of wine and the vine. Unpretentious and very comfortable. Thoroughly recommend...
