Domaine Purviti, an exciting new domaine from the southern Rhône

Website: Domaine Purviti

This is a new domaine created four years ago by Ingrid Nueil. Previously she was MD of the Terra Ventoux cooperative, but she wasn’t an enologist. But she wanted to pursue winegrowing, so she spent a year studying viticulture and then bought some vines in Vinsobres that had already been farmed biodynamically by Michel of Gramenon.

She has since added holdings in Rasteau, Ventoux and more in Vinsobres. She has a cellar in Seguret, and is biodynamic and natural in her approach.
