The Chamayrac family has owned this vineyard/winery Château Mire L’Étang since 1972, nowadays 50 ha, with 42 ha of AOC wines. Became self sufficient over the years and joined the Terra Vitis charter in 2003, whilst award winning over the years. The Château is close to the Mediterranean coast and ca. 15 km east from the city of Narbonne, postal under the village of Fleury.

La Clape has its own AOC since 2015, for white and red. Before it was a named subzone under the Languedoc AOP. La Clape wine gets its character from the ‘Massif de la Clape’ limestone and with this vineyard on the south-eastern hillside of the ‘Massif’. Red grapes are typically Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre. It is part of the Languedoc-Roussillon wine region, the biggest wine producing region in the world and 1/3 of France’s wine production. Over the years it has become a region to follow.
