Domaine du Cros
In the center of Aveyron lies the Marcillac Valley particularly favorable to the cultivation of the vine. Marcillac vineyards are planted on red clay slopes, called Rougiers, overlooked by limestone highlands. The current area of A.O.C., covers about 180 hectares, making it one of the smallest denominations in France. Philippe and Julien Teulier, owners of Domaine du Cros, belong to the dozens of producers who are in Marcillac. Until 1982, Domaine du Cros had only one hectare of vineyard and produced about 4000 bottles a year. Since 1982 the area has grown, acquiring both old vineyards and planting new ones reaching about 30 hectares. Of these 30 hectares, 26 hectares are in production A.O.C., 2 hectares are not yet in production and 2 ha are Vins de Pays. Since 2006, Julien has also been involved in the company, which ensures the continuity of a family tradition.
