- 100% Merlot
Montmija is the name of the ribautois’ vineyard of Juliette and Jean Vialade the family patriarch. Visionary of his time, Jean Vialade, president of the cooperative winery in Ribaute, made it the first European cooperative winery to become 100% organic 35 years ago. The Estate of Montmija developed over two generations thanks to Clément Vialade and his son Jean along with their respective wives. The vineyard now covers 27 hectares of vines planted on the slopes and the plateau adjacent to the Orbieu Valley in Ribaute.
Today Montmija is run by Claude Vialade and belongs to the Domaines Auriol.
