Domaine D’Ouréa, Vacqueyras
Located in Vacqueyras, in the heart of the Vaucluse department in the southern Rhône Valley, Domaine D’Ouréa benefits from an ideal location opposite Mont Ventoux and the Dentelles de Montmirail. The Domaine covers 20 hectares divided between Vacqueyras and Gigondas and produces wines from four different appellations: AOC Gigondas, AOC Vacqueyras, AOC Côtes du Rhône and Vaucluse Tire Bouchon wine.
Domaine D’Ouréa was founded in 2009 and is located on the renowned communes of Vacqueyras and Gigondas, in the southern part of the Côtes du Rhône.
Adrien Roustan, passionate about vines and nature, naturally took over part of his grandfather Raymond Bertrand’s estate after his studies, and then acquired new plots in Vacqueyras and Gigondas. He converted the vineyard to organic farming and named it “Domaine D’Ouréa” in 2010 as a tribute to his highest parcel of Gigondas located at 1700 feet on the South slopes of the splendid Dentelles de Montmirail.
With the help of Hissam Jait and seasonal workers, the estate now farms 20 hectares around the Hameau de Fontbonne in Vacqueyras.
Adrien Roustan commercializes and sells the entire production in bottles in all three colors, with a majority in red. The 4 appellations produced are Gigondas, Vacqueyras, Côtes du Rhône and its “Tire Bouchon”, labeled as a Vin de Table.
