Gigondas Domaine La Ligiere, Southern Rhone, France

£25.25

Situated in Beaumes de Venise, Domaine La Ligière is a biodynamic and organic vineyard which consists of 60 hectares of vines, 30 hectares of which are planted in AOC Vacqueyras. For 5 generations, the Bernard family cultivated the land for grape vines and other agricultural products, but it wasn’t until 2008 when Philippe Bernard and his wife Elisabeth Serra started producing wine from their own grapes. The vineyard is planted with Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre vines that are about 50 years of age on average (and up to 75 years on the oldest plot). Domaine La Ligière has been committed to cultivating their vines without the use of fertilizer, weed killer, or any chemical treatment whatsoever for over 10 years. The soil is ploughed regularly and fertilized with organic compost and the harvest is protected only with the use of natural products such as sulphur, copper, plant infusions and biodynamic preparations.
