A vineyard estate
If you’ve ever dreamt of being a wine maker, now’s your chance. The vines that tumble into the sea at the La Baraquette estate will be part of a large, working vineyard. Managed by the Seigneurie de Peyrat wine domain, one of the region’s top wine makers, the La Baraquette vineyard will grow local Picpoul and Terret grapes and produce a high-end sparking wine as well as a crisp and delicious Picpoul white wine. Wine has been produced in the Languedoc region of France since Roman times, and the vineyard at La Baraquette will connect all who stay there with the seasonal rhythms and bustle of local ‘viniculture’.
Owners will be invited to get involved in any way they wish - from picking grapes during the annual ‘vendange’ harvest to sampling the wines before anyone else at private tastings. You’ll also be invited to a number of wine workshops and talks throughout the year that track the production process. Each property will receive two cases of six bottles from the estate each year, which you can share with friends in your own private wine cellar build beneath the estate’s Concierge. Your wine cellar will hold up to 200 bottles at the perfect temperature, and have space for private tastings.
The vineyard at La Baraquette will be managed by the expert winemakers at the Seigneurie de Peyrat. Head-quartered just outside the pretty town of Pézenas, about 20 minutes’ drive from La Baraquette, the Seigneurie de Peyrat estate has produced fine wines for hundreds of years from vineyards that stretch for miles around an elegant 17th century château.
Head vigneronne at Seigneurie de Peyrat, Cécile Espada, runs regular tours of the wine-making facilities on the estate - to which all owners will be invited. She will oversee the planting of the vines at La Baraquette, and work with her team to ensure that the wines produced at La Baraquette are as balanced and delicious as the award-winning wines currently being produced at the Seigneurie de Peyrat itself.
