DISCOVER THE HISTORY OF THE RUBENS SPENGLER ESTATE
AN IDEAL LOCATION
The Rubens Spengler estate covers 33 hectares of which 13 hectares are planted with vines and 13 hectares which will be replanted over the next 6 years. The vineyards, mostly terraced, benefit from an optimal amount of sunshine which gives the grapes a strong concentration of aromas.
In the heart of the Bas-Armagnac region, in the middle of the triangle between the cities of Bordeaux, Pau and Toulouse, it is all the sweetness of the heavenly landscapes that are concentrated in the wines of the domain situated between forests, mountains and ocean.
A TASTE OF ADVENTURE
After having lived in Canada where they created an 800-hectare animal reserve in which North American fauna such as bears, wolves and moose thrive in freedom, the Spengler family decided to throw themselves body and soul into this new challenge with the acquisition of the Domaine Rubens
Constantly adapting, always being precise
As soon as the Spengler family acquired the estate in 2017, everything was rethought in order to implement a production approach aimed at expressing the slightest particularities of their terroir.
Thus, more respectful planting densities, plot management, reasoned control, maintenance of green manure and plant compost, observation of grassing needs, systematization of bioprotection during vinification within a more global approach of limiting inputs… are now the cardinal virtues that dictate the daily life of the estate. They are so many cursors to be adjusted that let us foresee a radiant future between increasing precision and exciting challenges to solve the annual equation of perfection.
These same reasons led the Domaine to immediately equip itself with an adapted winery where the precise blends desired by the Spengler family have resulted in fruity and elegant wines from the first vintages.
