Domaine Deleuze-Rochetin in Arpaillargues is almost 200 years old. In 2006, Catherine Cathonet took over this family-run estate, and commissioned the building of a new, privately owned winery.
Catherine and Jean-Michel Cathonet both knew they needed to start managing the vineyards in a way that protects both the land and its people. Within two years they had switched to farming their 20 hectares of land organically.
In 2013, they retained the services of Baptiste Cartier, an acclaimed winemaker with 20 years’ experience of organic viticulture and winemaking. Baptiste has worked with the Cathonets ever since, putting his considerable skills into showcasing the Domaine and the beauty of its terroir.
