Jean Orliac

Jean Orliac is a passionate vigneron, full of ideas and is always looking to improve his wine and the conditions in which he makes it. He has moved from a conacre position (system of land rental) to owner status and from sharing a cellar to building a sophisticated chais (wine storehouse). He was one of the first to plant vines in the Pic St. Loup area.

 

Domaine de L’Hortus is a family business, with Jean and his wife, Marie-Therese, working alongside their sons Yves, Francois and Martin. Their daughter Marie also runs the small Clos de Prieur winery close by. The scenery around Domaine de L’Hortus is jaw-droppingly beautiful. The Domaine takes its name from the mountain of Hortus which overlooks the rolling patchwork of vines. If the scattered locations of the vineyards look random, they are anything but.

 

Before planting any vines, Jean Orliac studied the flowers and plants growing in the area. The fact that certain varieties were to be found on the north-facing slopes, and others on the south-facing hills, told him all he needed to know about which grapevines to plant where. This adapting of the vines to suit the terroir is crucial to the success of the L’Hortus wines and is a key element of the Orliac philosophy.

Domaine de l'Hortus

There are both red and white grapes growing in the Hortus vineyard which currently covers a little over 60 hectares (150 acres). Mostly planted in the Fambétou comb, its boundary to the north is the rocky cliff face of the Hortus plateau (facing due south), whilst to the south it's the northern face of the Pic Saint Loup
