domaine ligneres - view of Alaric Mountain


Château la BaronneLa Baronne rouge

The vineyard of the Lignères family is very fortunate, it has a lot of doctors to take care of it! André and Suzette have pampered it for 50 years and now the younger generation continues to be challenged with the old vines Carignan, Mourvèdre, Grenache and Syrah. You'll surely share this passion when tasting their wines.
