Vineyard Arielle Demets
Faugères is one of France’s smallest winemaking appellations, with just 2,000 Ha of vines. It has managed to preserve its remarkable heritage and the authenticity of its landscapes. Its exceptional biodiversity of plant life covers no less than 8,000 Ha where holm oak forests, chestnut trees and scrublands coexist harmoniously on rocky terrain in which 7 small villages that seem lost in time are a great example of preserved heritage.
The vines are located in the far North of the appellation, at 350 metres altitude between Cabrerolles and the hamlet of Aigues-vives. Vineyards are becoming increasingly rare here and have been replaced by vast expanses of holm oak forests and chestnut trees. These small parcels cover just a few ares of land and are scattered amongst the woods at the foot of the Pic de la Coquillade which overlooks the vineyards at an altitude of 696 metres and proudly faces the Mediterranean.
