Domaine Clavel


Pierre Clavel

REGION: Languedoc-Roussillon
APPELLATION: AOC Coteaux du Languedoc

In Saint-Bauzille-de-Montmel, just a few miles from Montpellier lies Domaine Clavel. This family-owned vineyard and farm were founded by Pierre Clavel and his wife Estelle. Pierre, a self-taught winemaker driven by his passion for winemaking, embarked on his career journey in 1986. His dedication bore fruit in 1992 with the commercial success of his inaugural vintage, the Copa Santa wine. Following this achievement, Pierre and his wife Estelle made the deliberate choice to establish roots in the Mas de Perié region. Here, they initiated an expansive agricultural project, incorporating vineyards, olive groves, livestock, and various other tree crops. 

Today, alongside their two sons, Pierre and Estelle craft wines from indigenous French grape varieties, both white and red, cultivated organically and in harmony with nature. Employing manual harvesting methods, all grapes are carefully handpicked. The wines undergo vinification and aging processes, frequently utilizing cement eggs and oak barrels. 

In addition to crafting wines on their estate, they offer wine tourism excursions, providing visitors with an opportunity to explore their vineyards and winemaking process. They also produce pure, natural products such as extra virgin olive oil. Furthermore, they play a vital role in fostering a terroir that emphasizes strong human connections and experiences in perfect harmony with nature. Domaine Clavel joined Terra Vitis in 2010 to guarantee transparency to its clients, traceability, and quality and is also certified High Environmental Value.

Wine Region:


Much of the fertile plains of Languedoc-Roussillon have been dedicated to agriculture and viniculture. One of the major wine growing regions in France, the historic area of Languedoc encompassed a far larger portion of Southern France including much of Provence and current Occitanie; Roussillon, on the other hand, is significantly smaller and just about the area of the East Pyrenees.  

About one-third of all vines used in French viniculture are in this area. The climate of this somewhat dry region – with the some parts of the area receiving the least amount of rain in the entire country – as well a strong winds coming from off coast, aid the region in sustaining high levels of organic production and contribute to its standing as the leader in French organic winemaking.
