The wine is named "Villa Mon Rêve" after a little stone cottage situated on our vineyards in La Livinière, heart of Minervois terroir. The story began many years ago when the previous owner built the cottage for his ailing wife so they could spend what they thought were their last years in this idyllic setting, surrounded by beautiful vineyards. A dream came true when his wife made a miraculous recovery and hence the cottage became "Villa Mon Rève" (the house of my dream). This incredible story behind the name also inspired the wine. Finally, after all these years we now believe we have selected an exceptional north facing Syrah that does justice to this uplifting story of "Villa Mon Rêve".
