WELCOME TO DOMAINE LA SARABANDE
Domaine La Sarabande was established with the desire to craft exceptional wines that reflect our profound passion for winemaking. Our journey began more than a decade ago when we embarked on a quest to discover vineyards in France that would enable us to realize our dream of creating a vineyard dedicated to producing high-quality wines while offering an unparalleled wine tourism experience. After extensive research and exploration, we discovered the Faugéres appellation, a charming and intimate wine region nestled in the Languedoc, which met all our expectations and requirements. Since then, we have poured our hearts and souls into cultivating this vineyard to produce premium wines that embody the essence of our family-run business.
