At the gates of the beautiful Pyrenees Orientales, facing the Mediterranean coast, between fragrant garrigue and sun-soaked vineyards, lies in the region of Languedoc the village of Ferrals les Corbières. In its historical centre is located the Ledogar estate. For 3 generations, the Ledogar family has cultivated 22 hectares of vines, issued from an amazing variety of different grapes, with surprisingly very old roots (60 to 120 years). Planted all around the village, on the precious terroir of Boutenac, the family vineyard is cultivated organically, with biodynamic herbal medicine for some plots. In 1998, the family estate emancipated itself from the local cooperative and vinified its first wines at the initiative of its successor, Xavier Ledogar. Assisted by Mathieu his younger brother, he strove to produce "pure blood" Corbières. Today, the brothers have found their style and grow with excellence the fruit, the sun and the freshness. Members of the association "Change the Aude county into wine", the young dynamic winegrowers campaign for an authentic expression of their terroir. Engaged artisans with a big heart, they are certainly part of the rising stars of the appellation Corbieres.
