La Domitienne Grenache Gris - organic
The vineyards are the property of the Bonfils Family and occupy sections in the sub-areas of Minervois and Corbieères. The name La Domitienne is named after the ancient road, Via Domitian which divides the two growing zones, one in the North and the other in the South. The Via Domitia was the Roman road that allowed Roman soldiers to control all of Southern Gaul.
This Grenache Gris Rosé is from St Guilhem le Désert, a commune in the Hérault department in the Occitanie region in southern France. Situated in the narrow valley of the Gellone river where it meets the steep-sided gorge of the Hérault River, Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert is essentially a medieval village located on the Chemin de St-Jacques pilgrim route to Santiago de Compostella.
