Domaine La Garelle was originally located on a small gravel hill, but now extends over multiple parcels with varied soil and climate conditions. Orientation towards the sun, more or less draining slopes, stony, calcareous or sandy soils, exposure to the wind, freshness of the soil: all these variations have been carefully researched in order to grow our vines in very different conditions and thus obtain reasons with diverse characteristics allowing each variety to express all their aromatic potential, and this through our 25 hectares.

Our story


Vines have been cultivated in our region for more than 2000 years and the wine produced was then destined for the Roman armies in their camps on the banks of the Rhine. Through our work, we maintain this millenary tradition of vine growing and this is part of our pride as winegrowers. This estate was created by a Dutch wine enthusiast who, like his family before him, lived in the trade and import of French wines into the Netherlands and Germany.

For my part, coming from a village near Ménerbes, I have always believed that this region has the potential to produce great wines as long as the know-how and investments are made. An agronomist by training, I was sure that remarkable wines would be produced here. The path of quality has been opened by other areas and I wanted to be part of this movement as well. My family was of winegrower origin and if they left this region it was because the vines did not allow them to make a living. So, as soon as I was able to do so, I took over this estate so close to my family's land (less than a kilometre) to continue the development of this estate.

There are now 5 people working on this Domain and, every day, they try to improve the Domain, improve our quality, preserve and enrich our natural environment. That's why I wanted to become a winegrower in the Luberon.

Other little stories

An anecdote about the wine produced in the Luberon: During the First World War, this Luberon wine was mainly used as a drink by the French armies. Needless to say, quality was not the first concern.

This culture of the volume to be produced remained firmly rooted in the minds of winegrowers for a long time until the 1960s. Every year, as a child, I had to drink the wine of my great uncle who produced a wine closer to acid than to the nectar of the Gods or the velvet of the stomach! Every year I asked my father if I could not have to taste it: "Son, you will drink your great uncle's wine! »
