Chateau de la Liquiere - Cistus ROUGE -

Chateau de la Liquiere tells a beautiful family story, inseparable from the terroirs of Faugères. The grandfather, Jean Vidal, was a true pioneer, as early as the late 1960s, the parents, as precursors, put their first vintage in bottles. Today, François, Sophie and Laurent operate some sixty hectares in AOC Faugères with, each year, a dozen different vintages. Liquiere began a conversion to organic farming in 2009.
