Sculpting history into a work of nature

We let vines grow as naturally as possible, with respect for fauna and flora, and in tune with the stars. Removing wines’ artificial and pointless layers. And offering sincerity in our cuvées by showing they are immortal! This is what animates us, and why we farm Domaine la Florane biodynamically. In the southern Rhône Valley, in Provence, we love making wines that exude the terroir’s enriching presence. In this woodland-hemmed haven where we live, above the villages of Visan and Saint-Maurice, we make pleasurable and elegant wines.

Nature first

“Stay faithful to our innermost intuitions, and to our dreams as well.” The dreams shared by François Fabre and his son Adrien. Reconnecting with the land, paying homage to it, protecting it, and making sure that everything they do is perfectly attuned to the spirit of Nature. Making wines from proper organic grapes. Wines that are alive and touch the emotions. Wines that are profound, well-balanced and silky-smooth.
A human and family adventure, an adventure built on deep-reaching roots, which highlights day after day the heritage of two fine terroirs.

ORGANIC & BIODYNAMIC FARMING

Close-up on vine cultivation

Farming our vines biodynamically means we are two contented artisan vignerons! Observation and great respect for terroir are the very basis of biodynamics.

The influences of the fauna, flora and stars give our wines their own identity.

ABOUT ADRIEN

"I’m from here and nowhere else!
With my feet in the terroir – my two terroirs!
My eyes focused in the dark cellar.
My mind wanders over borders, like our wines! With my nose in the air, alert to the scents of La Florane’s valley."

A garden of grapes

Each spot on the estate has its own plot and variety!

The starting-point is quality plants, planted in suitable plots. La Florane has a fine estate of vines with good vigour and an average age of about 40 years.

Cellar

Vinification & ageing

The cellar, three quarters underground, has a gravity-fed design to avoid any unnecessary mechanical steps. With this short natural pathway from vine to vat, the grapes retain all their intrinsic qualities.

’A tree is known by its fruits; and my father says, ‘It’s from the quality of the grapes that you imagine the vintage.’
