In 1990, a group of winegrowers in the South of France came together to take up a “mythical” challenge: creating a great wine able to give an authentic expression to the originality of their Languedoc terroir. To symbolise their patient labour in the vineyards that stand in unspoilt countryside, they chose the owl, emblem of the ancestral goddess Minerva who taught mankind the secret to harnessing nature. With La Cuvée Mythique, Vinadeis wanted to be part of an environmental and solidarity approach by creating a wine that combines quality and preservation of the environment.
