When it comes to homeopathic beliefs, the winemakers at La Maison Carrée have established this as one of the most eco-friendly vineyards of the world. Their belief in herbal treatments of the vines, natural environment adaptation and proper aging of their wines has created a product truly worthy to be called premium wine. Having purchased the property in 1827, the family has passed down their traditions and expertise generation by generation, holding true to their natural traditions and creating a brand that has already stood the test of time.
The vineyard itself encompasses nearly 10 hectares of space (or 24 acres) and possesses a clay and lime mixed soil that provides the vines with all of the nutrients they need to flourish. The grapes have an interesting taste that comes out in every bottle they produce. In true dedication to their heritage, they produce wines that come from a select varietal group of grapes. With Chasselas, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Gris planted on their acreage, they have the best vines for the soil and thus can produce the best grapes from it.
This, in conjunction with their natural farming methods, provides them a wealth of opportunity to produce some of the best wines in the world, such as their Auvernier, a Pinot Noir that ages at least one year before bottling and then even longer before being offered to customers. This premium wine is great for pairing with wild game or a variety of hard cheeses and is a favorite among those who purchase their wines. The quality of their wines has certainly given them a respected name among the vineyards of the world.
Perhaps after our opening in West Palm Beach in 2017, we might add some of their wines to a rotating wine list. We are still building the list, so stop on by after we open and check it out. The winemakers we plan to feature are definitely going to be worth the time!
