A VINEYARD AT THE HEART OF THE CÉVENNES FOOTHILLS
Located 50 kilometres away from Montpellier and Nîmes, between Anduze and Uzès, the estate bears its name from the letters H and N, initials of ‘’Hic et Nunc’’ – Here and Now in latin.
At the heart of the Cévennes foothills, the winery is situated by an exceptional environment - both preserved and natural - where the vines are surrounded by about two hundred olive trees and twenty hectares of forest.
A PATCHWORK OF TERROIRS
In order to highlight the diversity of the vineyard, the six grape varieties - Grenache noir, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Merlot, Cabernet sauvignon et Petit Verdot - are divided into twenty parcels, according to their sun exposition and the soils characteristics.
The plot by plot vinification allows each terroir to express itself and reveal its features in order to create unique wines.
AN ORGANIC COMMITMENT
The sixteen hectares of vines, and its surrounding, are cultivated in an environmentally
sustainable and responsible manner.
This commitment - written in the DNA of the winery - is now certified by the Organic Farming label since 2017.
AUTHENTIC & CREATIVE WINES
When the grapes are ideally ripe, each parcel is harvested and brought to the cellar to be destemmed, sorted and vinified separately.
From inox tanks to oak barrels, passing by half-muids barrels and integral vinification, every detail matters to sublimate the features of each parcel in order to create free and inventive blends.
A BIT OF HISTORY ...
Since the Antiquity, the estate has been a a desirable place to live, as witnessed by the vestiges of a former Roman opppidum, found during archeological digs back in the XIXth century.
The mas – whom building date remains unknown – appears in the regional archives as a place of residence in the XVth century.
In the XXth century, the estate was turned into a ‘magnanerie’ or silk factory. The mulberry trees were replaced by the vines at the beginning of the 2000's.
