Clos d’ora is a stone walled vineyard of nine hectares located at la livinière in the minervois area.
when gérard bertrand discovered this extraordinary site in 1997, he knew that one day he would produce a fine wine from this vineyard. today, his homonymous wine made by a blend of carignan, grenache, syrah and mourvèdre grapes, has become his greatest masterpiece. in the vineyard, the work between the rows is made only by horse traction. the grapes are harvested and fermented separately before being blended into this exceptional interpretation of the minervois terroir. the wine is then aged during 12 months in this french oak barrels, located in the highest point of the estate.
clos d’ora takes its name from the latin word ora, which means prayer and it also signifies the link between the alpha and the omega, the beginning and the end. in fact, above this beautiful barrel room there is a meditation area and a cozy house that gérard bertrand uses when he comes to the estate.
