Pietri Geraud

Domain: Pietri Geraud

This historic domain is now the last to survive within the actual boundary of the famous village of Collioure. The cellar, built in the mid-19th century, can be found in a small, steep Collioure lane, and here, every year, even before the end of the tourist season, the harvested grapes are brought down from the mountain over Collioure. For the Domaine Laetitia's twenty or so hectares of schist terraces nestle on the last foothills of the Pyrenees mountains, at an altitude of several hundred metres, with a commanding view over the Mediterranean. Agouilles (small canals) criss-cross the entire domain and drain away the floodwater from the rare but violent storms from the Cru towards the Dui stream which passes through the middle of the vineyard. The domain has always been exclusively planted with Grenache Noir, the favoured grape of Banyuls/Collioure wines, with vines regularly renewed so that the average vine age is around 50 years. Today, Laetitia Pietri – representing the fifth generation of Collioure growers – heads up the domain that bears her name.
