Wines & the Vineyards
Ideal for wine tours in Languedoc
We want our estates and their vineyards to be a perfect expression of this diversity and for our wines to reflect the personality of each terroir, with respect for nature and authenticity. Diversity also holds the promise of pure flavours, those of our wines.
Finally, diversity is cultivated in the rebirth of heritage and people, through wine tourism projects and social responsibility.
Creativity and the quest for excellence are passed on from generation to generation. In the 19th century during the exile of Joseph Bonfils, Honorine Dorveaux, his future wife, launched the farm with numerous vineyards. She then planted relentlessly, without knowing that she was growing the Bonfils' legacy.
A visionary, Jean-Michel Bonfils introduced new techniques for working the vines and the cellar in Languedoc Roussillon. He plants Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in Languedoc Roussillon, grape varieties still little known in the region. The last twenty years have been marked by the work of Laurent and Jérôme Bonfils, who have made a major contribution to making Languedoc Roussillon a land of elite wines. Today Laurent Bonfils, who has taken over the management of the company, with his winemaking expertise, has set himself the mission of nurturing the singularity of the wines of each estate.
We implement sustainable cultivation methods capable of producing quality wines.
The Bonfils family has selected the most beautiful terroirs of Languedoc Roussillon. Passionate about wine, they have shaped the most promising lands. They have parcelled out the terroir, favoured the hillsides and chosen the best exposures. Their legacy is much more than a vineyard, it is a resistant buttress, a preserved peninsula and many other sites where nature expresses itself and offers exceptional wines.
Our eco-commitments rest on 4 essential pillars :
- • Preserving biodiversity
- • Preserving water
- • Respect the soil
- • Respecting the vine
The estate of Château St Pierre de Serjac occupies a superb 245 acre site with a breathtaking view of the vineyards, olive trees and woods. At the heart of the property, the cellar has been completely modernised and the first vintages of the new era were bottled in 2018.
With more than 15 different grape varieties flourishing in the heart of the vineyard, St-Pierre de Serjac is nicknamed « la pépinière des cépages » (the nursery of grape varieties). Situated in the foothills of the Faugères, the terroir benefits from its influences with a predominantly clay-limestone soil.
The winery and the vines were entirely restored between 2013 and 2016. The winery now houses 21 stainless steel vats used for the vinification of the different vintages. On either side of the entrance, two huge oak vats bear witness to the history of the estate.
In continuous production since Roman times, wine has been part of the history of Château St Pierre de Serjac.
The estate's wines come from a selection of plots in order to extract grapes of exceptional quality and to accompany your moments of sharing and pleasure.
