Tenth generation winemakers, Nicolas and Miren de Lorgeril, from Vignobles Lorgeril, are the owners of several wineries in the Mediterranean area of southern France. They make wines on terroirs set at altitude in Languedoc-Roussillon region. Château de Pennautier, built during the reign of Louis XIII by Bernard de Pennautier has been the possession of the family since 1620. Situated in the tiny AOP Cabardès, the château creates wines of great complexity due to its multifaceted terroir. Château de Ciffre, owned by the Lorgeril family since 2007, is a unique site standing at the point where the three Appellations d’Origine Contrôlées Saint Chinian, Faugères and Languedoc meet.
