Domaine de l’Amandine is the product of a traditional, family-run vineyard laid out on the terraces and foothills surrounding Séguret, classed as one of France’s prettiest villages - in the southern Rhône valley, between the Mont Ventoux and the Dentelles de Montmirail.
The owners, Jean-Pierre Verdeau and his son-in-law, Alex Suter, are personally involved at every stage of the wine’s making. Harvesting grapes from vines averaging 50 years old, their care and attention to detail have helped craft a wine of great balance and regional character. This traditional but dynamic enterprise with 120 acres of vines in production is now in its fifth generation of family winemakers.
“Domaine de l’Amandine”, takes it's name the ancient and venerable almond trees growing around the family vineyard, a poetic evocation of Jean Pierre’s love for his provençal heritage and the precious terroir and knowledge handed down to him by his forefathers. The almond tree, like the vine, is hardy and self-sufficient and can thrive in poor soil. It has always been a powerful symbol of the power and wisdom of nature’s cycle: one of the first trees to blossom, it is harvested in the autumn, reminding us that there is a natural rhythm to the cycle of life that cannot be rushed. It thus perfectly symbolises the family’s connection with the soil and respect for nature.
