The Carignan Noir grapes are organically grown in the Minervois, where the warm Mediterranean climate is influenced the cooling effect of the sea, resulting in concentrated fruit with balancing freshness. The vineyard faces south and west, optimising exposure to the sun. The 60-year old vines are pruned in the traditional Mediterranean Gobelet method, which allows the shade from the leaves to protect the grapes from the sun. As a result of the vine age, the poor soils and the concentration that is sought by Olivier Coste, the vines are low yielding, producing just 30 hectolitres per hectare. The 15-hectare vineyard is farmed in the traditional method, using mechanical tools rather than chemical herbicides to control weeds; pheromones are used rather than pesticides to reduce pests in the vineyard and grape pomace is employed as fertiliser to nourish the soils. In order to preserve the biodiversity of the vineyards, trees are continuously planted, over 2,000, in order to preserve and maintain the wildlife. The grapes are hand- harvested in the cool of the night, in order to retain freshness and quality.

Since his childhood, Olivier Coste's favourite place to play was in the vineyards and the wine cellar at his family’s wine estate, which was founded in 1701 in Pézenas. With this upbringing, he developed a passion for nature, the Languedoc region and southern French wines. The vineyards are located a few kilometres from Pézenas where the Mediterranean Sea asserts its influence on the vines. The estate is certified HVE Level 3, which complements the family’s existing ‘Carbon Neutral’ approach. They reduce their CO2 emissions, keeping them to a minimum and offset the rest by financing ecological initiatives, including projects in India. Olivier’s (OC)riginal Stars range has been created for those who appreciate a modern, fresh and fruity varietal wine and is complemented by quirky packaging.
