Domaine La Provenquière, a Centuries Old Winery
Domaine La Provenquière has been ruling the vineyard industry since the 15th century. Successively owned by Jean Provencher, the Marquis de Puisserguier in the 18th century, it was later transformed to its current state by Paul Teissonière, Counselor of Napoleon III, who acquired it in 1860. The Robert family became the owner in 1954. The vineyard, with an area of 155 hectares, is spread over three villages. The ideal terroir allows the production of a wide range of Pays d’Oc wines, in white, rosé and red. Since 1994, Brigitte and Claude, their children, have joined the business as well and the vineyards have been extended. Domaine La Provenquière’s winemaking facility is named “Pech Falcon” due to the presence of many small birds of prey nearby.
Winemaking at Domaine La Provenquière
All the grape varieties of Domaine La Provenquière are grown on suitable plots that can give great expression. The terroir are of several qualities, clay and limestone, river alluvium and blue marl. The diversity of grape varieties is an essential basis for the development of the range. Some wines are matured in oak barrels, others are more focused on fresh fruit aromas. The cellar, well-sized and well-equipped, allows all vinification, from the most traditional to the most technological. An external company handles the bottling . The same company moves the wines to the estate with a bottling truck, ensuring both conventional capping and screw capping.
