Laurent Miquel is based at Château Cazal Viel, the Miquel family estate in the Saint Chinian appellation, South of France. The superb terroir of Cazal Viel was first planted by Roman warriors, the ruins of their villas and an ancient well still stand on the grounds of the estate. For almost 6 centuries (from 1202) the monks of the local Abbaye de Fontcaude crafted their wine at Cazal Viel.
Since 1791, eight generations of the Miquel family have worked the vines of their estate high in Languedoc hills. Father to Son, harvest after harvest, they deepen their knowledge of the fickle nature of the vines that grow here and learn to work in harmony with nature.
