Dom Brial was created in Baixas in 1923 as a response to the major viticultural crisis that France was going through. A handful of winegrowers joined together around a common conviction: “Together, we stand strong”.
It was in this spirit of solidarity and excellence that the winery was created. The cooperative expanded very rapidly; this cornerstone of solidarity proved to be very productive for each and every vineyard and its reputation quickly spread beyond Roussillon.
The collective of winegrowers clearly demonstrated the strength of this solidarity when the name Dom Brial was selected in 1985 as a mark of recognition of their best wines.
Dom Brial, a Dominican priest born in Roussillon, bequeathed a perpetual annuity to the communes of Baixas and Pia so that they could each maintain a school for the poorest children in the area.
The Baixas winegrowers, the cream of the crop in Catalan viticulture, knew how to prosper and make their vineyard and production tools highly successful. They were also able to garner interest and train with their 3 neighboring cousins, who shared their vision and business strategy.
Today, they represent 247 winegrowers who are passionately committed to cultivating 2,100 hectares of vineyard.
A dynamic team supported by 37 employees ensures the rigorous management and economic development of the winery.
