Ecological campsite in the Cévennes and an organic vineyard
Much more than just an ecological campsite in the Cévennes, the Domaine d’Anglas is also an organic vineyard. In the family since 1896, the Domaine d’Anglas produces organic wines with no added sulphites with 12 hectares of vines classified as the AOP (Appelation d’Origine Protégée, protected geographical production) Terrasses du Larzac. Here, everything is done by hand, from the vines to the cellars. This hard and passionate work translates into refined wines.
Organic vineyard and agropastoralism
Sustainable development is at the heart of the good functioning of the organic vineyard. Located in the foothills of the Cévennes National Park, agropastoralism is a key factor of local culture. This is why, every year in winter, more than 400 sheep come to eat the grass of the vineyard of the Domaine d’Anglas. In collaboration with the shepherd, the flock fertilises naturally the soil and keeps the grass in between vines down. This symbiosis means the vines are well kept without the use of any chemicals and everything is in favour of the environment! This why a sheep has become the emblem of the Domaine d’Anglas and is represented on each wine label.
