CAP LEUCATE

Long threatened by the urbanisation of the coast, partially destroyed by the sea in 1982 and hit by the Vins Doux Naturels crisis, the Cap Leucate vineyards have nevertheless survived, under the protection of the Lady of Cézelly, its emblem, who saved the village from the Spaniards in 1590.

It also owes its survival to the solidarity of its wine growers and their membership of the Vinadeis Group. Diversification of production, renovation of the winery, restructuring of the vineyards, adoption of more selective vinification methods… Today, the Cap Leucate winery produces 70 wines from 1,263 hectares of vineyards. In the excellent location of the Leucate plateau, a remarkable natural site sitting within the Natura 2000 area, the Leucate growers take a “Respect for Men & Nature” approach to their work, harvesting the grapes by hand and producing their wines in a winery partly certified as organic.
