Domaine du Mage

Written by Piero Pardini


Le Tariquet has been home to the family of Hélène and Pierre Grassa since 1912. Generations of winemakers who, to this day, cultivate the land with passion and dedication.
Today, the company’s wines are appreciated for their quality, the result of the commitment of Yves Grassa, a famous Gascon winemaker who, twenty-five years ago, had the courage to break the rules of traditional vinification in white wines to offer a production whose gustatory constants are fruitiness, freshness, elegance and finesse. Not only. He was the first to plant vines in the region that were not very common at the time, such as: chardonnay, sauvignon or chenin …
Vineyard fertilizers are of biological origin. Furthermore, to limit the impact of the treatment on grape juice, the water used to dilute the active ingredients is partially demineralized and its pH is lowered. This makes it possible to reduce the use of plant protection products by almost 40%. Finally, the use of sulphites is reduced to what is strictly necessary, preferring the use of antioxidant products such as vitamin C. In addition, the glass of the bottle, the aluminum of the capsule, the paper of the label and the carton of the package are materials 100% recyclable.
