Profile of the winegrower


At the entrance of the Gorges Bagorèse, on the right bank of the Argens, an enchanting turquoise blue reflections river overhung by beautiful steep cliffs, is Correns, a village in the Provence countryside, outside the national roads. A few miles away is located the Domaine des Aspras that tells a beautiful story about the meeting between a family and a terroir : 50 years ago, Gottfried and Lisa Latz left the Belgian Congo, landed in the south of France and settled in Correns in Provence where they discovered their passion about wine. The family shortly bought some parcels of vines and during many years sold the grapes to the negoce. In 1971, when Michael Latz, agricultural engineer by training, joined his widowed mom for help, the first bottles are marketed and Domaine des Aspras is born. Today, Michael is helped by brother David and his 3 sons Raphael, Alexandre and Sébastien : "les 3 frères". Robert Nourrisson, vineyard manager, left the neighbor Miraval to work the terroir of Aspras and move to the biodynamy.
Aspras honors this exceptional terroir with secular fame, whose Benedictine monks of Montmajour had already acknowledged the unique wine growing potential in the 13th century. The limestone hills that surround the area gave it its name "asper" - (aspera, rockery in Latin).
This land is cultivated in organic farming, to 95 % today. An initiative of Mayor Michael Latz , who gathered the habitants of Correns in early 1995. Today, the village of Correns is the 1st ORGANIC village of France, distinguished by its preserved quality of life and also by its environmentally friendly agriculture.
The Domaine des Aspras takes the Latz family's motto : "Know thyself" (te ipsum nosce). The work of their soil and in their cellar is guided by the determination to product organic wines with a true reflection of its exceptional .
Symbol of strength and beauty, the Unicorn invites us to go a few steps further on the path that leads to wisdom. It's a beautiful journey that offers the tasting of these great wines, highly confidential...
