It all started in the 1980s, when Roger Mangin settled in the village of Vingrau to finally realise his dream of making his own wine. An exciting adventure began then, first with a few hectares, which will quickly multiply facing the success of the wines, to become today 35 hectares of vines, all cultivated in integrated viticulture. Today, this passion continues with the 3rd generation.
The Elegance of the Terroir
Les Terrasses and the Arago Cave
Located on the west side of the Vingrau valley, the Verdouble canyon wind between the limestone cliffs. These erosion-prone waters contain a multitude of caves, including the famous “Caune de l’Arago”, where the skull of a 450,000-year-old paleolithic man – the oldest human fossil found in France – was discovered. Our vines, planted in terraces on the edge of the cave, inspired the name of the estate.
