Beautiful round trip through the southern Allgäu in the middle of the blooming cattle pastures and mostly off the roads.
Behold the gentle rays of the sun caressing the hilly landscapes, get carried away by the delicious smell of the garrigue, listen to the rhythm of the cicadas and the singing accent of its inhabitants, all while appreciating the quality of the wines on the palate... One thing is certain, the Corbières wine region will awaken your five senses!

From the Pyrenees to the foothills of the Montagne Noire, along the Mediterranean Sea magnificent estates pass before your eyes on the quiet little roads of the Aude. These are lands steeped in history which, from generation to generation, have managed to retain all their simplicity and authenticity.

So, if you are enthusiastic about "natural" activities and love good wines, soak up the atmosphere and let yourself be enchanted by the Corbières, an unsuspected world of treasures!


The Corbières, a well-established wine-producing region

The cultivation of vines took root here several centuries ago... The first vines were planted in Gallo-Roman times near Narbonne, which was once a strategic location for trade! Today the mildness of the climate, the perfect balance of dry and warm, makes it possible to continue to produce high quality wines.

It is also the biodiversity of the terroirs and soils (schist, hard or soft limestone, shale, sandstone) which allows the winegrowers to offer wines with multiple colours and flavours. The AOC Corbières appellation offers wines made exclusively from blends.

Certain grape varieties such as GrenacheCarignan and Syrah have been cherished for a long time and offer magnificent century-old plots. In the reds, Mourvèdre and Cinsault bring their aromatic richness to the three main grape varieties.

Since 1985, the AOC Corbières has been producing heavy and intense wines, with a rich, spicy, full-bodied  texture. Something to satisfy all palates!


The most beautiful routes through the vineyard of the Corbières

For those wanting to fully experience the adventure of the pioneers in Languedoc, the Corbières territory doesn’t disappoint! Travelling at our own pace by bike allows us to fully explore the Corbières wine roads, and meet the people responsible for cultivating this divine nectar.

Several itineraries invite you to discover the different facets of this wild and little-known region. Take a breath of fresh air on the route of the ponds and the sea, go back in time on that of the Cathar castles and the Terrasses of Lézignan Corbières, enjoy the Tuscan-style atmosphere of the route of the Boutenac cru, or discover the unspoilt landscapes preserved from the mountain of Alaric.

In short, let yourself fall under the spell of this Southern land of deep-rooted authenticity!


Passionate and exciting winegrowers

Philippe Montanié, winemaker at Château Gléon, tells us about...

Have there always been vines in Gléon?

The cultivation of vines as a monoculture here in the county of Durban began as red wines for ageing around 1850, with the arrival of the railway. Before that, there were vines in Gléon, but they were mainly for self-consumption. Sheep were mainly raised, holm oaks were exploited for the tain, and alfalfa was grown for its seed.

Are you winegrowers from father to son in the Montanié family?

Yes, the Montanié's have always been winegrowers and we have been in Gléon for 6 generations. Before me, they each ran the estate when they retired. I am the first to have arrived so young at the head of the estate.

What is your vineyard like?

We grow grapes on a variety of soils (clay-limestone soils at the bottom of the slopes and schist terraces) because our vineyard starts at an altitude of 30m and peaks at 350m. We have 50 hectares divided into fairly large blocks, surrounded by the garrigue, with an average plot size of 4 hectares.

What is the aromatic profile of the Gléon wines?

We make wines with a powerful aromatic profile, combining structure and vivacity in a setting of finesse and elegance. All our vineyards in the Berre valley are on the southern slopes, so our wines are full of sunshine with beautiful, deep colours. We are the first property in the Durban area, and also the last to benefit 100% from the Mediterranean climate.
