The wines of Maison Ventenac

Maison Ventenac is a young and dynamic project based in the vineyards of the Ramé family in Cabardès, just north of the city of Carcassonne, at the (fairly wild) west of the Languedoc. Characterised by the split in place between Atlantic and Mediterranean influences, their vineyards are likewise split between the Atlantic (Cabernets Sauvignon & Franc, Merlot and Malbec) and the Mediterranean vines (Syrah, Grenache, Carignan, Cinsault and Mourvedre). We love the up front and no nonsense messaging in their Dissidents range. It reflects the Ramé family's pushing the boundaries to find ways to express their interpretation of the land.

I’ve placed two orders for two cases of wine from Chris, so far. Super experience both times (delivery outside of Dublin) and superb wines.

I stumbled across this wine merchant while searching online for a particular Spanish wine. I'm glad I did as I discovered an excellent selection of wines from that country, as well as from other regions, all at competitive prices. Excellent personal service and prompt delivery made for a great overall experience. Highly recommended

The owner Chris provides an incredible customer experience. After I had ordered online, he contacted me separately to offer additional insights into all the wines I had chosen and to give me a voucher for next time.

Welcome to The Allotment Wine Co.

When you buy wines from The Allotment Wine Co. you're supporting a small Irish business which in turn supports small, sustainable wine producers, as well as other small, dedicated Irish wine importers.

When selecting wines, I look for partners who share a deep respect and connection with the land and its traditions, witnessed in a firm commitment to quality and sustainability. All of which makes for better wines.
