Located not far from Saint-Rémy-de-Provence – a small town famous for being depicted a lot by Van Gogh – at the North of the Alpilles mountains, Domaine Milan was created in 1956 by Robert Milan and later taken over by Henri, his son, in 1986. Henri Milan had from the start great ambitions and expectations for the domaine. He always had been passionate about wines as he planted his very first vine at 8 years old, and wanted to make wines in total respect of nature.
With great geological diversity (blue marls, calcare0us screes, clay) and different climates, the estate had everything to produce great wines as Claude Bourguignon, a famous French microbiologist, showed him its full potential. Henri decided to separate the domaine in several plots like in Burgundy and created the Clos Milan in 1989. A meeting in 1996 with Claude Courtois from Domaine Les Cailloux du Paradis made also Henri realized he had to run the vineyards according to biodynamic principles.
After several years of work, Domaine Milan finally produced in 2000 his very first vintage. Henri with Sébastien and Dominique managed to revive the soil and the wine is today expressing its gratitude. From the fruit to the bottle, they take extra care to produce one of the finest wines of Provence.
