History of the Domaine

Our heritage, celebration as a way of life, the art of wine as a key to our culture.

 

Welcome to the heart of Languedoc, to the Saint-Chinian terroir. Here, in the south of France, on our limestone terraced hills, the vines share the land and sun with the garrigue and olive trees. Our family vineyard consists of 98 acres on which we use a system of sustainable agriculture in order to preserve the lasting quality of its soils.

 

In fact, the property has been in our family for nearly five centuries (since 1551), passed down from generation to generation. In the grounds of our property we’ve found the remains of a Gallo-Roman villa. Our house itself dates from 1911, and is decorated with a Bacchic fresco, showing that the family has always had a tradition of wine-making and festivity.
