Domaine de Fontedicto

Domaine Fontedicto is located in Languedoc in the south of France, 25 km from the Mediterranean Sea and at an altitude of 150 meters. The domain lies on 5 hectares of chalky soil, peppered with volcanic stones. The terraces face from Northeast to Northwest, surrounded by oak trees.Grape varieties of Grenache, Syrah and Carignan yield between 17 and 23 hectolitres per hectare, depending on the year. Since the winery was founded in 1993, we have been using a biodynamic viticulture methodology with respect to soil, plants, animals and the environment. We use animal drawn equipment from plowing to transportation of grapes during harvest. The wine is vinified and aged at the domain without addition of chemical products.Owner Bernard Bellahsen started using organic practices in 1977 and adopted biodynamic culture in 1980. He has been using horse-drawn plowing since 1982.
