Tucked away in the heart of the rolling hills near Pézenas, in the Midi, the authentic South of France, Domaine Sainte Cécile du Parc, is a recently-restructured, family-run wine estate. The domaine covers 15 hectares (circa 37 acres) of organically farmed, vineyards and olive groves. Since embracing the project in 2005 when it was supplying grapes to the Cave Coopérative in Pézenas, they have undertaken a major overhaul and investment programme and are passionately committed to transforming the unique terroir into a quality-driven source of the finest wines.
We can trace the domaine’s origins back to the Napoleonic maps. Vineyards have been planted on Sainte Cécile’s terraces for over a century. The land lies at the foot of the Cevennes mountain range to the North. The winery is located in the very heart of the domaine, encircled by most of the vine plots from the roof terrace can be seen the tip of the steeple of the Pézenas Church 2 km to the South.
Wines are made from Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah, with the flagship wine - Sonatina - being made from old vine Syrah and Cinsault.
