Winery Info/ Brand
La Pèira began in 2004, in a small stone barn halfway between Grange des Pères and Daumas Gassac. One belief inspired La Pèira: that with rigorous and uncompromising work in the vineyard and non-interventionist winemaking, the true character of this terroir may convey something of its beauty and wildness, something unique and expressive.
Region Info/ Origin
The history of Languedoc wine can be traced to the first vineyards planted along the coast near Narbonne by the early Greeks in the fifth century BC. Along with parts of Provence, these are the oldest planted vineyards in France. The region of Languedoc has belonged to France since the thirteenth century. From the 4th century through the 18th and early 19th centuries, the Languedoc had a reputation for producing quality yet cheaper red wine with the use of highly prolific grape varieties, normally blended with red wine from Algeria to give them more body. Today, the region of Languedoc emphasises only on production of quality wine with plenty of finesse with an unmistakable bouquet that speaks the true spirit of one such beautiful terroir.
