Domaine la Grangette was founded in 2001 by Michel Maron, who then passed it on to his daughter Christelle with her husband Matthieu Caron in 2012. Although some of this winery date back to 1750 the rest is mid-20th century. The estate is located 5 kilometers from the Mediterranean, in the Picpoul de Pinet AOP, covering 60 hectares which also include pine forests and planted cereal grains and alfalfa. The surrounding rolling hills are covered with garrigue, and the soil is rich with hard and soft limestone.
Although the local Picpoul Blanc grape is cultivated throughout six communes locally, la Grangette is the only estate using the Picpoul Noir variety to make white, red, and rose wines. When the couple took over the farm and initiated sustainable practices their goal was to make quality wines from these and other rare grapes historically planted in this area. In 2019 they even began planting a gray variety of Picpoul. The estate’s farming methods have been certified as organic since 2018, and the Carons intentionally limit their yields and farm with utmost respect for the environment with an eye towards the future.
