Domaine du Météore Organic Languedoc Wine Grown Within and Around a Meteor Crater

Domaine du Météore is a vineyard located in the wild and mountainous Haut-Languedoc regional park, South West France. Our vines grow within and around a breath-taking 10,000-year-old meteor crater, which lies at the heart of the Domaine. On selected summer evenings, we welcome 16 guests on a wine-tasting experience at the foot of the crater itself, with an accompanying seven-course menu produced by a Michelin trained chef. With minimal intervention, our range of organic wines truly give a sense of place, expressing both terroir and our unique astronomical history. We offer five reds, two whites, and a rosé, noted for their complex flavour profiles and distinctive minerality. In fact, our Léonides Rouge was recently rated among the 10 best expressions of terroir in Southern France and the best value for money of this selection (Revue du Vin de France). In addition, our acclaimed rosé wine Le Météore, described as ‘dangerously delicious’ (Editor, Hello Magazine), is the perfect way to put stardust back in your glass!
