Domaine de l’Hortus is owned by the Orliac family, headed up by Jean and Martin. They were amongst the first to recognise the vast potential of this area. Jean first rented vines in 1978, before planting his own vines between the two peaks of the region, the Pic St Loup and the Montagne de l’Hortus. In total, they now have 55 hectares of vines, split over two sites. The main vineyard area is near the winery, where Mourvèdre grows on the scree slope under the Montagne de l’Hortus, whereas Grenache and Syrah are grown on a northeast facing slope under the Pic St Loup, with a cooler microclimate.

The punchy Loup Rouge doesn’t stray too far from the local varietals (Grenache, Syrah, Carignan) but a speedy maceration and stainless steel ageing means that this wolf doesn’t bite: tannins are silky smooth and give way to plush, ripe fruit.
