The producer

Domaine Barou

In 1997, after studying viticulture and oenology in Orange and Avignon, Emmanuel took over the family domaine and oriented the exploitation towards viticulture. This specialization resulted in the planting of new plots in AOC Saint-Joseph and Condrieu AOC, and the renovation of an old barn into a new chai. Today, the domaine consists of 7 hectares of Vin de Pays vines on the granite soils around Charnas, and 3 hectares in nearby Limony of AOC St Joseph and Condrieu. Since 2013, the domaine has been practicing biodynamic methods.
