Our philosophy
& terroirs

Here, the wind and sunshine combine to ensure perfect conditions for organic wine growing. We focus on preserving soil vitality and the vineyard’s natural balance to nurture the character of our wines.

The Faugères vineyards grow on rugged terrain on the edge of the Cévennes foothills just North of Béziers.  Here, the schist soils are porous and poor in nutrients. As a result, the vine’s roots delve deep into the ground extracting the unique personality of this terroir.

O vin !
que j’aimais tant
et que toujours j’adore

O vin !
précieux nectar
tu vaux que l’on t’honore,

From an ode to wine
by André Rouanet
De Vigne-Lavit

_ 1929

We voluntarily limit our yields so we can focus on the quality of the grapes. They are harvested by hand and then vinified with great care to make gastronomic wines that age well and transparently express the terroir and vintages with finesse and complexity.

Boris Feigel is part of the up-and-coming generation of passionate young wine-makers. He lovingly watches over the barrels of Castel Viel and Boria which are matured under the château, while our young wines are aged in the chai.

Join us at the château to discover the secret alchemy of our wine.
