The Bourdic Intercommunal Cooperative Cellar. 

 

Started in 1928 with a handful of winegrowers from the villages of Arpaillargues-

Aureilhac, Aubussargues, Bourdic and Garrigues-Sainte Eulalie who joined forces to build this wonderfull cellar. From the beginning of the adventure the priority was given to the vineyard and winemaking tool in which we continue to invest regularly. Driven by an entrepreneurial and innovative spirit, we have developed over the generations a know-how that is now widely recognized. Often pioneers in the establishment of new grape varieties, such as Viognier in 1993 or Gewurztraminer in 2010.
