Herbarium and useful garden of Chateau Monestier La Tour
Château Monestier La Tour has a dedicated garden for useful plants and herbs and a tisanerie (herbarium). A variety of plants are dried and stored in the herbarium, so they can be used to make the preparations to strengthen the vines. The harvesting of wild plants is complemented by the cultivation in the garden of species that are not naturally present at the property. The garden ensures a supply of “basics” such as comfrey, camomile, nettles, thyme, horsetail and other herbs which are then dried and stored in the herbarium.
