Jean Orliac

Domaine de L‘Hortus is a stalwart of the Wines Direct cellar and the Orliac family have been our friends for many years.

Domaine de l’Hortus is nestled between the Pic Saint-Loup and Hortus mountains to the north of Montpellier. In fact, it was these mountains that originally brought Jean Orliac to the valley in the 1970s. Jean was an agricultural graduate as well as an avid rock climber, so he immediately recognised the potential of the abandoned parcels at the foot of the Pic Saint-Loup cliffs. He gradually acquired land in the area and began to make distinctive wine that draw finesse from this wild land.

Following the year 2000, Jean’s Children returned, one by one, to help run the family estate. Today, Domaine de l’Hortus wines are the fruit of the efforts of François, Marie, Martin, and Yves Orliac (Martin and Yves pictured with Gareth Keogh). Each of them specialised in some area of the operation, either among the vines, in the cellar or in the office. However, they all share the same objective of perfecting the work handed down to them by their parents.

Domaine de l’Hortus is a tribute to the wild landscape of the Pic Saint-Loup and Hortus mountains. Their wines are widely acknowledged as some of the most successful and pioneering in the Languedoc. 

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
