Languedoc Vine Guardians

The Vine Guardian program helps small independent winemakers to overcome adversity, to thrive again and continue to produce delicious Languedoc wines. Become a Guardian of a row of Languedoc vines and enjoy the wines, the connection to the land and know that you are supporting a talented wine maker.

Why was the program set up?

We set up the program to help Emmanuel Puy, a talented young Minervois wine maker following the unusual spring frost in 2021 which devastated his vines reducing the crop by over 75%. We reached out to our customers offering them a chance to come to the rescue by adopting a row of vines in return for a case of wine and a strong connection to the Puy vineyard. The response was fantastic and over 100 people pledged their support.

The damage the frost wreaked on the vineyard will stretch into the 2022 vintage so the support of the Vine Guardian’s is vital to this domain. It will also allow Emmanuel to invest in new growth and new wines and continue to welcome you to his vineyard for tastings, vineyard walks and picnics which are exclusively enjoyed by Languedoc Vine Guardians.

This is your opportunity to become a Languedoc Vine Guardian and adopt a row of Languedoc vines, enjoy the wines, the connection to the land and the fellowship of the Vine Guardian community.
