In the 12th century, the monks of the Lagrasse Abbey began to exploit the land of Pech-Latt. Initially a place for growing cereals and raising livestock, traces of an exploited vineyard were found there as early as 1634. This culture will become the main one from the beginning of the XXth century. In the town of Lagrasse, Château Pech-Latt is located in the heart of the Corbières appellation in Languedoc-Roussillon, ideally located between land and sea.
Pech-Latt, in Occitan "top of a wide hill", in reference to the vast hilly expanse over which the domain extends, is located in a natural cirque surrounded by hills and scrubland, at an altitude of 150 meters, at the foot of the Alaric mountain. Due to its geographical location, the domaine benefits from an exceptional terroir that allows it to maintain a coolness on its soils, thanks to the foothills of the surrounding hills and mountains but also to the winds that sweep the region.
Pech-Latt covers more than 400 hectares, including 160 hectares of vines, 90% of which are classified as AOC Corbières. The main grape varieties of the region are grown here: Carignan, Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre.
In the 1970’s, Château Pech-Latt stopped using chemical weed killers. Then, in the 90s, it was one of the first vineyards in France to be certified organic, right from the beginning of this label. This philosophy of respect for the earth, the vines and the people is an integral part of the DNA of Pech-Latt. It is a way of preserving this wild Eden which is offered to him but also of magnifying this true gem of the Corbières.
Based on its heritage of several centuries, Château Pech-Latt is now entering a new chapter in its history. A renewal that relies on men and women driven by the ambition to develop this unique terroir in the heart of the Corbières.
