The vineyard is located at an altitude of 580 metres, in a protected valley on the edge of the Ventoux, a wild region whose diverse soils make the terroir particularly rich.
The estate is farmed organically, guaranteeing the preservation of biodiversity. A total of forty hectares are cultivated, including orchards, truffle fields, olive trees, vegetables and cereals in addition to the 26 hectares of vines.
In addition to the cultivated land, the landscape is composed of forests, scrubland, hedges of local species and hillside reservoirs.
Through traditional, sustainable viticulture and horse-riding on a dozen hectares, Domaine Les Davids aims to revitalise and preserve the soil, with respect for and for biodiversity.
These combined qualities, both human and natural, allow the estate to produce, year after year, exceptional wines in reasonable quantities.
Les Davids is also an ecosystem dedicated to wine tourism: La Terrasse des Davids, Les Davids' bakery, les Hamaux des Davids and Les Davids' art trail.
The winery is the work of architect Marc Barani.
The building, cast in concrete with wooden planks, has been coloured with the colour of the rocky soil of the region, so much so that it appears to be a natural element.
The cellar is designed to work by gravity, to guarantee the integrity of the grapes and the work done beforehand. It is composed of three communicating levels, with gravity driving the entire winemaking process. This oxygen-free approach preserves the aromas and colour of the wine.
The Davids are also equipped with concrete tulip tanks, an original shape that increases the efficiency of pumping over and delestage and optimises the exchange of juice and marc.
CONTACT LES DAVIDS
The cellar counter hosts original tastings, imagined as dialogues between chefs, sommeliers, and the estate's winemakers and oenologists, Aristide and Mayra, through wine and food pairings that are specifically designed to reveal the best of our wines, and sublimate their aroma. From the terrace, visitors are invited to live a unique experience, in which all the senses are invited, the taste, obviously, but also the sight, the glance flying on one side over the Grand Luberon and on the other, turned on the impressive room of the concrete tanks. Asserting itself as a vineyard conceived around an integrative ecosystem dedicated to oenogastronomy, Les Davids wishes to weave close relationships with starred restaurateurs, whose inspiration will enable them to implement these agreements and reinterpret them in their own way.
