The couple Karina and Guillaume Lefèvre started Domaine de Sulauze in 2004 on a beautiful old estate in Miramas, between Arles and Marseille. It covers some 500 hectares, of which only 30 hectares are devoted to viticulture, in addition to 20 hectares of wheat and grain and 5 hectares of olive trees. The rest is wilderness, with traces of previous inhabitants here and there, from Romans to Carolingians.
They have been working organically from day one, and they have been able to extend that working method to biodynamic in a short time. They feel obliged to this method, so that this place is not influenced too much for future generations. A certain degree of self-sufficiency is also part of this: they bake their own bread, brew beer, grow vegetables and fruit, and a small herd roams around the domain.
