Between the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean

Domaine PIETRI GERAUD was fonded end of the 19th century. It spreads on 26 hectares, 16.5 of which are on the terroir of Collioure.

Steep terraces, beween the end of the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean, with schists, vines that struggle and yields that other areas would deem ridiculous.

Five generations of “colliourenqs” (inhabitants of Collioure) worked on the Estate and today two women are in charge : Maguy PIETRI GERAUD and her daughter Laëtitia.

Their cellar is in the old village, not far from the well known steeple that so many painters represented.
