The charming village of Lagrasse is located in the French commune in the center of the department of Aude. It is part of the Languedoc-Roussillon region and part of the Corbières Massif. Ranked as “the most beautiful village in France,” Lagrasse, a small medieval city, contains many architectural treasures of the 14th and 15th centuries—the church of Saint Michel, the two bridges, the ramparts, and the beautiful stone facades. Lagrasse rests in an amphitheater where the river Orbieu flows.
Depending on circumstances and conditions, one of two vineyards is selected accordingly.
Château Ollieux Romanis
A family domain in organic agriculture between the mountains and the sea lies on 160 hectares of vineyards on a terroir rich in biological, geological, and climatic diversity.

From the time of the Romans, this territory was known for its drinking water sources, which are still present to this day, allowing the regulation of the cellar’s temperatures with barrels.
