The Domaine de Merlac is an old 18th century wine-producing estate situated above the villages of Rieussec and Saint-Jean de Minervois in the heart of the Pays du Minervois.    

This small hamlet, made up of a number of stone buildings, was entirely restored in 2018 with the charm and taste of traditional materials : stone and wood.

In the heart of nature

Situated in the heart of a natural realm of more than 500 hectares, this extensive estate boasts magnificent countryside as well as offering all the comforts of an exclusive property of character. The charm of the property together with the surroundings and the climate all make this an exceptional location.

The new owners decided in 2019 to renew the life of this former wine-producing estate by planting a hectare of Chardonnay. Below, the landscape has been newly completed with a stand of some 40 olive trees.

In addition, a kitchen garden and henhouse will enhance the pleasure of visitors who will be able to enjoy fresh, natural products from the Merlac estate.
