The Estate

Established in 2015, Domaine La Lauzeta presides over long-established vineyards on the schist foothills of the Espinouse and Caroux mountains in the north of the Saint-Chinian appellation. The estate operates a small winery in a beautiful old house in the nearby village of Saint-Nazaire-de-Ladarez.

The name La Lauzeta comes from the Occitan word for skylark, a petite bird with a proud crest and a beautiful song. The skylark also featured heavily in the poems of Bernart de Ventadorn, a medieval troubadour who once roamed the region performing epic cansos – songs of noble and chivalrous love.
