The Rombeau estate benefits from an exceptional terroir in the Agly plain. The vines also flourish thanks to a favourable climate in Roussillon, where the vines have been cultivated since Roman times. Our 87 hectares of vines allow us to highlight both local grape varieties (macabeu, malvasia, grenache, mourvèdre, white grenache, muscat petit grain and muscat d'alexandrie...) and more exotic varieties in our region. The adaptation of the latter has amazed us because the Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Marsanne, Roussanne, Petit Manseng, Vermentino are not really regional of the stage... Our clay-limestone soils of rolled pebbles cover relatively shallow groundwater that allows the vine to develop harmoniously despite hydric stress due to the region's low rainfall. The tramontane and sea wind allow the vine to dry and help photosynthesis. Nature has thus offered us an exceptional site with all the conditions required to produce great wines.

Our story

It's a family matter! It all began when Henri de La Fabrègue, great-grandfather of the current owner, Pierre-Henri owned some vines. The latter were ideal for the production of natural sweet wines so faithful to the Roussillon terroir. But it was his son Henri II de la Fabrègue, who, after a successful career as a haematologist, resumed his work and his research and succeeded in bringing the great natural sweet wines to the excellence we know today. Pierre-Henri de la Fabrègue, current owner, has also been able to impose his paste on this estate by adding the right modernity to it to achieve an exceptional and subtle quality of wine thanks to technological equipment, reasoned and organic viticulture. By creating the Auberge du Domaine de Rombeau and buying the Hôtel des vignes, he has made the Domaine de Rombeau an essential wine tourism site in Roussillon. The next generation is also present and it's not about to stop... His nephew Philippe and his daughter Elise, are ready because the estate is growing and is already turning towards an export development of its wines since 2013, while pursuing its quest for product excellence in order to do justice to the wonderful terroir of Agly and to this invaluable family heritage.

Other little stories

Our leitmotiv lies in this sentence full of lightness and sincerity: "Here, the work of nature and that of men resonate to create exceptional wines".

The implementation of new winemaking processes always accompanied by a marked respect for nature allows us to produce balanced and quality wines. Our vineyard has been working for more than 25 years in sustainable viticulture and, since 2010, a quarter of it has been converted to organic farming. What a job but for what result! Isn't that right? Our old Grenache vines, nearly 65 years old, and our Syrah vines, more than 35 years old (among the oldest in the region), allow us to produce great red wines for ageing with the finesse and complexity that our customers have never denied.
