Domaine de l’Aiguelière : Wines Famous for Outstanding Quality

L’Aiguelière progenitor was Antoine Commeyras (1796-1838), and today, 8 generations later, the young Antoine Commeyras, born in 1995 and backed by his grandfather Auguste Commeyras, is in charge of winemaking.
All of the winery’s wines have been famous for their outstanding quality since the beginning, thanks to our advantageous soil and location. We’ve been converting to organic agriculture since 2018, and the 2021 harvest is certified organic.
