The story of Domaine Sulauze has a romantic and fortuitous origin: winemaker Guillaume Lefèvre and his wife Karina met by chance while vacationing in Corsica, fell in love, and settled just outside Marseille where they purchased Domaine de Sulauze with financial incentives from the French government.
15 years later, the couple has invigorated the 29-hectare estate, cultivating not only grapes but also olives and grains. Domaine de Sulauze gets its name from the flakey limestone dubbed “lauze” found throughout the farm—ideal terroir for local varietals. The biodynamic vineyards are farmed by hand, often plowing with the aid of animals that live on the property.
In the cellar, Guillaume continues a practice of using as little intervention as possible, producing natural, gentle, and pure expressions of Provence’s red varietals.
