Manoir du Carra
Fleurie 'Vers le Mont'
Domaine Manoir du Carra is a family estate which is run today by Frédéric and Damien, members of the fifth generation of the Sambardier family.
From 4 hectares in 1962, the surface of the estate has now grown to over 37 hectares from the best limestone clay plots from south Beaujolais to the Crus located in the northern part of the vineyard.
As we constantly feel concerned about our terroir and environment, we have now received the “High Environmental Value” certification which rewards environmentally-friendly practices.
