Domaine Saint Antoine
Domaine St. Antoine lies in the heart of the upper Minervois, a region favored by a moderate climate, extraordinarily adapted to make some of the finest wines in Southern France. The winery was re-launched in 2011 when it was bought by Christoph and Petra Lehmann, a couple from Berlin passionate about both wine and southern France. They aim to produce high quality wines at affordable prices, conveying the unique spirit of “Sud de France” in the wine glass.
The estate has 23ha of vineyards with an emphasis on the traditional grape varieties Syrah, Grenache and Carignan, which cover 75% of their land. This assortment is completed by Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier. As in the old days, most vineyard work is done by hand, especially the harvest, allowing grapes to be carefully selected during picking. Cellar technology has evolved while still doing as much as possible by hand, like punch downs. All work is done with the highest respect for the vines, grapes and nature.
