Located in the heart of the Languedoc region, in Occitania, and very close to the Thau lagoon, the Domaine de Petit Roubié has been certified Organic Agriculture (ECOCERT certification) since 1985, which makes it a pioneer in this type of cultivation.
Operating 80 hectares of land spread between the communes of Pinet, Florensac, Marseillan, Castelnau de Guers and Mèze, the Domaine de Petit Roubié is involved in the preservation of the fauna and flora that are so important to our environment.
"Its terroir is the sea", this slogan of the Picpoul de Pinet appellation fits perfectly with the white wine of the same name and evokes in turn the honeyed white flowers that grow at the foot of the Piquepoule stumps, the smell of white citrus fruits and white peaches that mix with the salty and iodized scents of the sea spray that rises from the sea to the upper slopes of the Thau Lagoon. A wide range of fresh, colorful, fruity wines.
Life in the heart of the Domaine
Faced with the resurgence of many insects and butterflies, some of which are harmful to the vineyard, the Domaine has joined the "SOS Chauve-souris" program established in 2012 by the Conseil Général de l'Hérault (https://herault.lpo.fr/sos-chauves-souris/).
We have had a few nesting boxes installed on the Domaine to help these nocturnal animals and allow them to thrive outside the cellars where they have found an ideal natural habitat in the beams.
An indispensable key to help preserve our environmental heritage.
The importance of biodiversity
Being in organic farming we decided to offer a local beekeeper some plots of vineyards where to place his hives.
To preserve biodiversity and protect these species and thus provoke the pollination of numerous floral species which are essential to the good functioning of our profession.
