In a protected environment, among green oaks and cypress trees, the region has everything it takes to make great wines. In 2002, Jean-Michel Cazes created an estate of 150 ha of which 60 ha are planted with vines and 25 ha with olive trees,
on the slopes of the «Petit Causse».
The estate then underwent complete restructuring: drainage works and planting the varietals according to the potential and type of terroir in each parcel. In the ancient language of Oc, «ostal» denotes both the family group and the house where they live.
