Domaine des Nymphes : wine estate in Vaucluse 

The history of the Domaine des Nymphes

The Domaine des Nymphes is the story of a dream come true: that of Marcel Meyer who, in 1979, after having spent years at the Rasteau cooperative cellar, decided, with the help of his sons, daughter and son-in-law, to found his own estate, a family estate. 
The Domaine des Nymphes was built around mythology, thanks to an altar dedicated to the Nymphs dating from Antiquity found in 1850 on the current site of the winery. This is how the labels representing a naked Nymph looking like Marianne, which has become the emblem of the brand, were designed, associated with the names of the vintages referring to the different Nymphs of Greek mythology, such as the Maenads.


Presentation of the Domaine des Nymphes 

In Rasteau and Roaix, the estate benefits from an exceptional terroir, made up of clay and limestone soils, blue and red marls. This remarkable composition has the particularity of absorbing the heat present during the day and releasing it during the night. The vines are also exposed to the south, giving them maximum light. The Mistral wind completes the picture by optimizing the slow maturation of the grapes. Convinced of the tremendous potential of this land, Eric Petitjean decided to take over the estate in 2019.
He is assisted in this endeavor by Christophe Didier, who is in charge of the cellar and the vines. He is the one who conceives and elaborates the wines of the Domaine des Nymphes, in AOC Rasteau, AOC Côtes du Rhône Villages and AOC Vins Doux Naturels, in finesse and elegance, that you will be able to appreciate from the aperitif to the dessert, for your everyday meals, or for special occasions.
