A new Languedoc pink from the Orliac family to round out the Le Loup trio. With crunchy red fruit aromas and an energetic palate, this Southern French rose is as value you can't turn down.
- Domaine l’Hortus is located in one of choice cooler sections of the appellation of Pic Saint Loup, with vineyards nestled in a valley between the two limestone cliffs of Pic Saint Loup and the Montagne de Hortus.
- The winery was officially started in 1978 when Jean Orliac, an agriculture professor and avid rock climber, fell in love with the area and purchased land in and around these cliffs. After years of befriending vines and transforming 50 hectares of wooded slopes in disrepair, the family finally bottled their own wine in 1990.
- The vineyards are made up of a patchwork of small parcels over many expositions and variations of soil, each paired with an appropriate varietal. Respect for nature is always top of mind, as is a desire for wines that are light on their feet. The Orliac family goes to great lengths in the vineyard and cellar (they even go as far as to harvest fruit at night!), all in an effort to produce balanced wines of poise and pleasure.
