In the 90th we owned the Swedish wine import company Via Domitia, which was specialized on Languedoc wine. Now, as retired and living in Languedoc, we are still interested in wine and have the opportunity to have our former producers nearby and also to explore many new vine-yards. We like to share that experience with you in this guide.

LES CELLIERSd'ORFEE - 53 Avenue de Corbières, Ornaison

Again we have one of the cave cooperative that produces absolutely top wines in the Corbières area. They have their production in Ornaison and also p renisein Ferrals des Corbières. The name Orfe is formed by the first parts of the name of the two villages. The members of this cooperative comes however from a much larger area in Corbières and can there for get the absolutely best grapes that are harvested by the members, even from the prestigious Terroir de Boutenac. 

The wine is mainly made from the usual varieties in Corbières – Carignan, Syrah, Grenach and Mourvèdre, but other verities are also used in their white and rosé.

They produce six red wines, one rosé and one white. The red prestige wines are very powerful and can be saved for 10+ years easily. The most powerful wine is Cuvée Sextant and B de Boutenac is a more elegant and powerful wine of AOP Corbières Boutenac.

From this vine-yard, we always make sure we have a case of every year of B de Boutenac and Cuvèe Sextant to mature in our cellar.
