Presentation

Located at the footsteps of the Massif des Régagnas between the Sainte Victoire and the Sainte Baume mountains, Domaine La Michelle is firmly anchored in its cultivated land. In return, the land produces vines that carry all the qualities of their hillsides facing south and terraces set 300 meters above sea level.

Extra

This passionate and inspiring couple wants to share its very epicurean approach to wine. Thus, at the entrance of Auriol, Nelly has opened a magnificent shop where her loyal customers are supplied with wines but also with olive oils and capers from the estate, as well as with table wear. Jean-François entertains in a very stylish and welcoming vault, with wine tasting and even, in fine weather, discovery afternoons.

Original and unusual

By the way, who is Michelle? Around 1800, the estate’s very first owner was a certain Mr Michel. At the time, it was common for owners to feminize their name to baptize their land. La Michelle even gave its name to the road that leads to it.
