A family adventure launched in 2012, Vin de Famille Scarlata is a family estate located in Souvignargues, at the foot of the Cévennes. In each vintage we seek to obtain the symbiosis between the terroir, the grape varieties, and the know-how. All our interventions, from the vineyard to the cellar, are guided by passion. 2 thirds of the vines are in organic conversion and the rest in organic farming.
Located on small hillsides, the Souvignargues terroir is unique: late maturation, fresh wind... It is suitable for “natural” practices. The vines are grown naturally without synthetic chemicals or weedkillers. Plowed lightly but regularly in order to control grass cover while maintaining the biological activity of the soil, our plots are partly isolated, surrounded by oak woods.
The grape varieties grown are: Syrah, Cinsault, Carignan, Grenache noir for the red, Ugni Blanc, Alavrinho and Aranel for the white.
Vinification and aging are carried out with native yeasts and no use of inputs other than a light protective sulphiting if necessary. Rigor and passion are required in order to offer clean wines, with great flavor.
