Vineyard Domain Herrebouc

Closest to the very nature of what has made the profession of winemaker over the past centuries, this family winemaker do not to use herbicides, not to make “green harvests” or to mechanically weed. these choices allow it to predict an evolution towards organic and natural wines in the medium term.

These choices are accompanied by a requirement of constant quality at each stage of the winemaking because if the manner is important, all these efforts would be useless if the taste and qualities of the different wines produced were not the appointments.

You will have the great opportunity to have a wine tasting with 8 different wine flowing by a vegetarian lunch in the property.

Les Thermes de Lunchons
