Domaine du Petit Oratoire Details

In 2016, Lori Haon settled in Valliguières in the Gard. At the same time as he was finishing his oenology studies in Alsace, he found an abandoned vineyard of about 20 hectares on eBay . During the first years, he worked non-stop to recover the vines. Amongst the trees and bushes that had grown on the plots, he found magnificent hundred-year-old Carignan and Grenache vines, amongst others.

Today, he takes care of his vines by following the precepts of biology and biodynamics with Demeter certification. In the cellar, the wine-making process is carried out naturally without any oenological products, with indigenous yeasts, no or very low doses of sulphur, and without filtration or clarification. Natural and living wines, which are a clear reflection of the terroir from which they come and the values with which they are made.
