Domaine la Florane

Located in the seldom-seen (are barely known) village of Visan, Domaine la Florane is approximately 35 hectares of vineyards owned by the Fabre family since 1982.  The estate is certified organic, and has been managed biodynamically for many years now.  Since 2001 Florane has made and bottled their own wines on-site.

Vines are planted according to site - the Grenache occupies the highest sections of the vineyards (nearly 300m) on stony soils, whereas the Shiraz sits on warmer, lower sections that are richer in limestone marl and clay-based soils.  There are also small plantings of Cinsault and Mourvedre as well.  Winemaking is simple, utilising a gravity-fed design with much of the cellars underground, allowing temperature-control to be more precise.  Small parcels and plots of vines are all vinified separately using traditional techniques, with stainless steel tanks, concrete vats and large old oak foudres favoured over smaller and new oak vessels.  All wines are bottled unfiltered, with a light egg-white fining occasionally employed when necessary.
