About Domaine les
Located in Saint Jaimes, in the appellation of Crozes Hermitage, Domaine les 4 Vents’ 10ha vineyard is the domaine of Lucie Fourel and her sister Nancy Cellier. Lucie is a young “vigneronne”, who in 2006 took over 3.5ha in Crozes-Hermitage from her parents with the idea of making wines from her family’s vineyards under her own label. In 2013, her sister Nancy, decided to join the family business and the domain name was changed to Domaine les 4 Vents which was the name of the auberge that Lucie and Nancy’s great grandparents owned next door to where the family house and winery is today. In 2015, Lucie and Nancy inherited the remaining 6.5ha from their parents, bringing the domain to its current size of 10ha. Before returning to the family estate, Lucie spent a few years as an apprentice with different wineries in the Rhône Valley during which time she developed her philosophy and practices for organic and biodynamic farming as well as natural vinification.
Domaine les 4 Vents has both organic and biodynamic certifications and is planted exclusively with Syrah and Roussanne vines. Produced from the parcel of the same name in the hamlet of La Roche-de-Glun, it was planted 30 years ago “a l’ancien” with the vines being trained on a wooden pole “échalas”.
