Our winemakers

Evil domain (Domaine des Diables)

The story begins in 1979 with Virginie’s father’s creation of a vineyard in the scree, at the foot of Cézanne’s Mont Sainte-Victoire, in Puyloubier. In June 2005, the young generation , joined Virginie’s father on his estate and straight away began to implement what they had been taught while adding their own personal touch.

They created the Made in Provence concept, and developed original and tasteful packaging for worthy wines. Their first task was to target a young and trendy clientele.
