It was Marcel OTT, an agricultural engineer, who from 1896 onwards acquired the Domaines which he designated as Domaines of OTT. With a resolute passion, he undertakes to replant in noble grape varieties to revive these great Provence wines worthy of a thousand-year-old tradition.
Each Domaine Ott is cultivated with full respect for nature. Care is given to the land without chemical treatment or intensive production.
Over-aged vines are replaced to provide consistent quality for the wines of both Domaines. Over the years, each has been patiently reshaped to create the best growing conditions, espaliered and terraced. This regularity allows for natural drainage without runoff to pRéserver the soil and its character. The organic fertilizers are natural, and the vines are trained on wires. Fermentation of the juice starts in vats and maturation is accomplished in oak barrels. The Domaines are today among the most famous, most demanding and best preserved of Provence.
