History Domaine de la Baume
For more than a century, Domaine de la Baume has been carrying on a viticultural tradition and producing enchanting wines with strong aromatic potential.
Rooted in the heart of Languedoc-Roussillon in the small village of Servian, between Béziers and the medieval town of Pézenas, the Domaine is a source of inspiration. A true haven of tranquillity, surrounded by nature, it embodies the warmth of the South, conviviality, sharing but also love for the land. A single road will take you to the magnificent wrought-iron gate, decorated with a J and a P in honour of Jean Prat, its founder.
In 1882, Jean Prat with the help of his sons he restored 100 hectares of vineyard in the span of 20 years. After several changes of proprietor between 1947 and the present day, it was Joseph Helfrich, CEO of the Grands Chais de France group and 21st century visionary, who took over at the head of this wonderful estate in 2003 and proceeded to establish its much-deserved international recognition. Supported by its history and terroir, Domaine de la Baume today produces authentic wines for authentic wine-lovers.
The soil in the vineyards of Domaine de la Baume is very varied: while there are limestone pebbles on the slopes, the plateaux are clay-limestone and sandy-clay. This rich terroir allows the production of numerous wines ranging from an easy-drinking style to more subtle wines. But whichever they may be, they offer a vast aromatic palette.
Domaine de la Baume has won over 50 medals in 5 years.
