Welcome to the Domaine d’Ouréa website
a winery estate owned by Adrien Roustan.
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 (almost 50 acres) divided between Vacqueyras and Gigondas and produces wines from 4 different appellations:
- AOC Gigondas
- AOC Vacqueyras
- AOC Côtes du Rhône
- Vin de France Tire Bouchon wine
Organic agriculture …
All of our wines are elaborated with passion and following the principles of the organic agriculture. The entire vineyard has been certified organic since 2012 which means that we do not use herbicides or pesticides in our vineyard. We work the soil between the rows of vines. Adrien Roustan vinifies and breeds his wines in a natural way without adding any wine products to guarantee true, sincere wines that reflect the terroirs of Gigondas and Vacqueyras.
” Wines are produced without any wiles with my town’s grapevines “
… and Bio-Dynamism
After 10 years of working in organic farming, Adrien Roustan has decided to convert his estate into Bio-Dynamism from 2020 so that his wines gain in movement, dynamism, energy and vitality.
In homage to my highest plot of Gigondas located 520m high on the southern slope of the Dentelles de Montmirail, I named my vineyard, the domain of Ourea which is the “God” of the mountains in Greek mythology.
“What I enjoy the most as a winemaker is working in the vineyard. During winter, it is often thought to be as asleep, and yet, it awakens in such surprising ways each year. It never fails to amaze me. It is profoundly moving.”
