Domaine Reine Juliette: The Link to Winemaking History

The Domaine Reine Juliette sits along the southern side of the modern A9, which historically was the Via Domitia which connected Italy to Spain. The road played an important part in expanding viticulture in the Languedoc, and putting Picpoul de Pinet wines on the map. The Via Domitia was also known as via Reine Juliette after a queen of the same name who once travelled along it. Since the estate borders the road, it was named after this queen. This relationship to the region’s deep history is appropriate as Guillaume Allies is one of the guiding forces moving Picpoul into future; a future of higher quality, lower yields and more conscientious vineyard work.
