Domaine de la COURTADE
La Courtade estate, one of the treasures of Porquerolles island.
La Courtade estate produces great wines of Provence in Cotes de Provence appellation. It highlights grape varieties from Provence such as Mourvedre or Rolle. The vineyard is located in the heart of the island of Porquerolles, off Hyeres.
On the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, in the Courtade plain, it benefits from a particularly favorable island location and an exceptional maritime influence which gives the wines of the island a unique freshness.
The estate was founded by Henri Vidal in 1983. In 2014, Edouard Carmignac, businessman and wine lover, took over the estate at the same time as he set up his contemporary art foundation. He invested heavily in it to make it a flagship of viticulture from Provence and then surrounded himself with Michel Couturier, head of cultivation already in place and Florent Audibert, oenologist and new director of operations (first vintage: 2016).
Certified organic (Ecocert) since 1997, the vineyard is managed according to the principles of biodynamics, which is quite remarkable on an island. It is one of the most beautiful plots of Porquerolles. The soil is composed of schists, and the sunshine is exceptional.
This exceptional and singular terroir, associated with a maritime climate, makes it possible to develop wines of character with excellent aging potential.
