Producer Note

This Domaine covers 30 hectares of vineyards near Tavel and has been organic for more than 10 years. It gained biodynamic status from the 2012 vintage. Owned by the Leperchois family, the Domaine derives its name from its role as a coaching inn and the original cellars were developed in the old stables.

Vineyard
