Martin, Augustin and Vincent, Domaine de la Préceptorie, Domaine Augustin and Parcé Frères selection.
The Sons of Marc Parcé on the Maury, Collioure & Banyuls vintage and on almost all the appellations of French Catalonia.
A peasant vision of wine, sustainable and family, a willingness to take care of the inheritance received.
But why keep it short? So here are some elements that can talk about us, our history, our roots…
Parcé Frères, a family bond, a link to the land, a common style. A common work, a work in connection, a work in a place, in connection with a place, a magnificent place where I was born, in northern Catalonia, in the south of our beautiful France, in Banyuls-sur-Mer.
A widespread modern current would like us to no longer be interested in history, in our roots.
The lives man feeds himself, grows through history. The importance of history, of our history, of family history, of relationships, of places, of history to receive, to accept, to transmit, to write, “You will be a man, my son*”.
The family is now asking us to take over, to write, to be actors. Terroirs of Collioure, Banyuls and Maury, Domaine Augustin, La Préceptorie.
A family, connections, places.
Links and places to defend, to reveal, to support.
The story began by chance, in October 1976, when Marc, our father, replaced a worker in the vineyard of our great-grandmother, Thérèse Reig, for a few weeks.
It seems that links have been formed, that places have spoken, have seduced. A love was born, a love for its “loyal and constant local” uses, for its controlled, protected appellations.
A love consummated, willed, chosen and this unconditional love has borne fruit has spread.
We received this story, its links, its places, its love. The saying goes that the hardest thing is not to improve but to maintain oneself. This is our commitment, our desire, our “Fiat”. To maintain, yes to freely maintain this history, this bond, this love!
It is up to us to register, to register in time.
