Vines and wine, between Puyméras and Tavel

On the occasion of his first Tavel and Côtes du Rhône cuvée, Philippe Brun shared with us his passion for vines and wine. He told us about his integrated farming method, the cultivation of his vines and the wine-making process, in two different appellations.

The Domaine La Barrière is located at the foot of Mont Ventoux, between Vaison La Romaine and Nyons, at an altitude of 290 m, in the commune of Puyméras. Heirs to three generations of expertise, Philippe and Bénédicte run this 15-hectare family estate in the Côtes du Rhône appellation.

In 2007, they decided to vinify 1 hectare 20 in the Côtes du Rhône appellation and 84 ares 20 in the Tavel appellation in their own winery.
