Nestled among the foothills of Les Alpilles, where the clay and limestone soil retain moisture for the arid summer months, the Mistral blows half the year, and garrigue is seemingly everywhere. Dominique Hauvette, seeking more sunshine, left her job as a lawyer in the Savoie, and settled here. She re-discovered her passion for raising horses and began studying oenology. Thirty-some years later and Dominique now has 17 hectares of vines and an international reputation. Dominique’s conversion to biodynamics starting in 2000 added rigor to her intuitive organic practices, and coupled with her magical terroir she has found an exciting recipe for success.
