Domaine Le Pas de l’Escalette

View Winery Website

Located between Millau and Montpellier in the Hérault, the Pas de l’escalette is the old pilgrimage mountain pass linking the Larzac plateau and the Mediterranean. Nestled at 350 meters (1200 feet) at the base of the Larzac plateau, our estate of about twenty hectares is spread over some fifty terraces on either side of the valley of Pégairolles de l’escalette and Lauroux.

The vineyard are enclosed by ancient rock walls and large stone piles – known locally as “clapas”. High above and to the north, the Larzac plateau’s steep flanks provide protection from elements and natural irrigation from its springs. In this way, the land’s biodiversity and our respectful plowing of soils produce grapes in total harmony with their environment.
