Pierre Michelland is a young winemaker from Provence who trained in New Zealand. He brings a breath of fresh air to the world of the French Vigneron and his wines are simply a joy to drink. He uses biodynamic production methods.
Domaine de la Réaltière is located in wildest Provence, between Jouques and Rians, at an altitude of more than 1300 feet, just across from Mont Saint Victoire. The 20 acres of vineyard are surrounded by an olive grove and pine forests. In 1994 it became the property of Jean Louis Michelland, who began to work the vineyards organically. When Jean Louis died in 2001 while working in the vineyard, his son Pierre took over, following the practices established by his father.
