N°3 Terra Rosa – Organic Rose Wine
Rares Terroirs is a collection of wines from the Languedoc Roussillon region.
“Terra Rosa” terroir is situated in the valley of Agly at the foot of the Corbières, one of those terroirs who deserve to be known! In this majestic ocher-colored decor of the Mediterranean “Terra Rosa” are mixed stony clay-limestone and schist soils on hot and dry hills, producing not much wine but of high quality. Everything is there to make this magnificent setting a land of exceptional wines.
All the selected terroirs have a history and their own specific characteristics that are ideal for the crafting of fine wines. All are premium, high-quality wines, whose unusual aromas set them apart and which have been selected to offer consumers an alternative drinking experience.

For our Nº3 Terra Rosa vintage, we chose Roussillon in the extreme south of France, one of the warmest regions of our country . The vineyard is making organic wines since 2001 and is located at an altitude of 350 m on red land hence the name “Terra Rosa”.
Between sea and mountains, this vineyard enjoys a particularly privileged environment. With a typical Mediterranean climate, lots of sunshine, concentrated rainfall on short periods in autumn and spring and a dominant northwest wind called “Tramontane”.
Moreover, the first vines were planted in the region by the Romans, who from the first century BC, used Via Domitia and the Mediterranean to develop trade.
It is ideal both as an aperitif as an accompaniment to pizzas, grilled meats and even spicy dishes.
