Jean Louis Atienza, the President and Joël Julien, the Director (who is an agronomist engineer and oenologist), as well as the 350 co-operative members and the 21 staff members all pay particular attention to customers’ needs. In order to achieve the best possible customer satisfaction, the whole team has taken great care in creating, producing and marketing an extensive range of Vins de Qualité (quality wines). They are proud to have gained an excellent reputation – nationally, as well as internationally.
Our dynamic and enterprising team has already been awarded an astonishing array of medals in recognition of their achievements. These awards confirm that the implementation of our strategy, which is combining know-how and high-end technology, will give us the means to look confidently to the future.
The Cave de Pomérols was founded in 1932 and has since then steadily grown and prospered – and has seen a great deal of modernisation since then! The vineyards benefit from a temperate Mediterranean climate.
Following the merging with the Cave of Castelnau de Guers in 2003 and the Cave of Mèze in 2007, the subsequently extended vineyards of the Vins de la Famille de Beauvignac (Wines of the Beauvignac Family) are spread over 1800 hectares, 400 of which are classified AOP Picpoul de Pinet.
At present the Costières de Pomérols contract around 350 winegrowers who all have the knowledge and experience to produce 120.000 hectolitres on average. For the past several years the harvests produced on average: 57% white, 21% rosé and 22% red.
Our wines are classified half in IGP Pays d’OC (Indication Geographique Protégée) and 20% in AOP (Appellation Origine Protégée) Picpoul de Pinet; the remainder being in IGP Côtes de Thau (mainly rosé).
The grape variety is very varied and consists of Picpoul, Chardonnay, Viognier, Sauvignon, Terret (white varietal) and Merlot, Cabernet, Syrah, Grenache, Cinsault and Carignan (red and rosé).
Thanks to the bold investments that we have made, we have been given the means to grow the business in order to meet the ever-growing demand for our products, whether it is at home or abroad.
For more than two decades, our flagship brand ‘Beauvignac’ has been a resounding success here in France as well as all over the world. What is particularly remarkable is that export represents a high percentage of our sales, mainly to the U.K, Holland, the U.S. and Germany.
With over 40 different products as part of our range – 5 of which being different blends of the famous Picpoul de Pinet, only grown in this very region – the Costières de Pomérols offer an exceptional range of quality wines and A.O.P (Appellation Origine Protégée) – label guaranteeing the origin of wine.
We are strategically positioned at the heart of the market range, which is our strength and it enables us to produce fantastic, value-for-money, quality wines.
