on a human scale.
One hundred and fifty cooperative winegrowers manually operate small plots planted on the hillsides.
The shale stone terraces make any mechanization impossible. The work is hard and the returns low.
The production is divided between the Banyuls appellation (Natural sweet wine) and the Collioure appellation (Rosé Red and White).
Our cellar is located at Port D'Avall, in the old Dominican church dating from the 13th Century. Of southern Gothic type with a single nave, the church is classified as a historical monument. It is under these secular vaults that our great wines age.
Help our winegrowers to maintain this remarkable heritage of Collioure. Visit of the cellars, free tasting, direct sale.
A little history ...
Located at the end of the port of Avall, it was founded in 1290 under the orders of King James II of Mallorca.The 13th century is characterized by the development of the city's activities and its wealth.
The church which is said to have been built in the 14th century has undergone many reconstructions because of the wars and the earthquake of 1428. It is a church in southern Gothic style.
It has a single nave flanked by six side chapels positioned in buttresses.
Today, there are only five left. The portal of the main facade as well as the two arches on the left side have been classified as Historical Monuments since 1928.
The current old cloister is not the original cloister but certain elements belong to it.
Today, the Dominican convent has become the cooperative cellar of Collioure .
