We are a small, family owned, organic vineyard and winery situated high on the plateau above Vinsobres with panoramic views over the Mont Ventoux and the Pré-Alpes. With a long standing passion for wine, refugees from the City of London, Anna and Wilson Thorburn created the Domaine in 2007. From our 13 hectares (33 acres) of vines we produce Cru Vinsobres and Côtes du Rhône wines. Our wines are regularly recommended and have appeared in publications such as Guide Hachette, Bettane & Desseauve, Decanter, Le Figaro, Saveurs and Terre de Vins.
Delicious natural wines from a beautiful place

We now have three lovely gites which overlook our vines with panoramic views beyond to the Mont Ventoux. They share the large infinity pool.
