Domaine Ricardelle de Lautrec

Domaine Ricardelle de Lautrec is located in the Languedoc wine region of France. It’s not at all far from the sea and a stone’s throw from the border with Spain.

Domaine Ricardelle de Lautrec went organic twenty years ago, one of the pioneer estates in the region. It has also recently started to vinify natural wines with no added sulphites. The decision came from Lionel, the estate owner. Being Lionel sensitive to sulphites himself, he decided to experiment making wine without any amount added.

The test was successful and that’s how the estate started making natural wines for its client as well as for the family’s consumption!
