THE FACE BEHIND THE WINE | DOMAINE DU SÉMINAIRE
On 250 acres of land in the hills above the village of Valréas, a beautiful Provençal house, surrounded by olive and truffle oak trees, lavender fields, and thick forest, is the center of the idyllic micro-estate of Domaine du Séminaire. Hervé Pouizin is the fourth generation to farm this land; he and his wife, Mathilde, have preserved the self-sufficient estate mostly as it was a century ago, with one key exception: they converted everything to organic farming. The couple takes an old-school approach to winemaking, producing high-toned, bright, floral wines.
