The Story

Domaine des Pères de L’Église has a long history in the Southern Rhône Valley as the family has been involved in grape growing and wine making in the region dating back to 1884. However, the modern era for the property is quite recent with the start of high quality wines only beginning to take place with the 2007 vintage. Stepping back just a bit, prior to the birth of Domaine des Pères de L’Église in 1978, the estate was known as Domaine de Saints Pères.
