  • Winemaking

    You can make wine anywhere, as long as you have vines, soil, sun and water. To make great wines, however, you need great terroirs. It is precisely the terroir that motivates the choice of Dourthe estates or the choice of Dourthe’s vine-growing partners, in Bordeaux as well as in the Languedoc region. However, these great terroirs can only reveal their potential through the determination and effort of the people who work them. At Dourthe, this determination and effort can be seen at every stage of the winemaking process. Thus, over the years, Dourthe has developed its own particular culture – a culture intimately linked with the soil; with a taste for all that is good, the quest for perfection, team spirit and the desire to surpass their limits. Step by step, this culture has given rise to a style which, with the greatest respect to the terroir, characterizes and marks Dourthe wines.
