Our cave is a Cave Cooperative tracing more than 100 years of history as it was founded in 1910.
A Cave Cooperative is above all a collective, a group of men and women with a visceral attachment to their land, their region, their vines.
TO BE A WINE-GROWER IN MAURY IS TO DFEND A UNIQUE APPELLATION
Here, there is a little mechanisation, steep slopes and hard work. Those who have chosen to stay or to set up here have not done it by chance or out of facility. Otherwise they would not stay long facing the ever blowing wind, the slopes that are so steep, the poor, rocky soil. To make your living from this land is a daily battle. But each day the reward is there. To be master of your destiny in such a magnificent landscape, to take adventage of the Mediterranean climate and nature’s gifts – That’s freedom.
Of course it’s a demanding freedom but one that is rich with pleasure.
Each wine-grower is free, working daily in his vines. But there is a little extra in our cave, we put together our efforts, our reflections, our energy in order to go forward in the same direction.
The principle is one man = one vote
This remains the mantra. Each person, independent of the size of his vineyards can give his advice. We are rich in this diversity. It is a strength as each person brings his competence
1 + 1 = 3
There are also those who accompany us. Those men and women who daily work in the storehouse, the offices, the cellar - They, too, are the identity of the cave. Together we defend our land, the expression of our terroir, we live off its fruits and we cultivate a unique character though the elaboration of Maury wines for you and your pleasure.
HERE WE TRANSFORM THE FRUIT OF THE VINES OF THE GRAPE INTP PLEASURE.
