What makes Vignerons du Terrassous unique is to have kept a craftsman's soul from the vine to the bottle.
In the South of France, in Terrats in the middle of the hills "the Aspres" a legend wants to have been in time
very old, while Barcelona was a meadow, near the torrent Canterrane, a city named Mirmanda.
Mirmanda would have been the domain of fairies (the encantades) before being destroyed by a sudden rise in the waters of the Mediterranean.
Invisible to ordinary mortals, this city would have been seen only by rare shepherds, some of whom would have been appreciated by fairies
and would have become very rich. Nobody knows the origin of this legend that shows the richness of the Catalan imagination.
The oldest known mention of the village of Terrats, in the form "Terrenum", dates from July of the year 844.
That day Argila, son of the Count of Barcelona, sold to his own son, Bérà, two rooms with their dependencies.
One was named Furchas (now Fourques village) and the other Terrenum.
A century later, in the year 960, this name was transformed into Terradas becoming shortly after Terrats.
The Terrassous are the inhabitants of Terrats, it is under this denomination that the caves of Thuir, Fourques and Terrats have gathered.
Since 1932 our winemakers have been striving on these hostile hills of France, they are now 70 to cultivate 800 ha and their will
is still hanging on these pebbles.
