About the Winery:
Domaine de L’Ile is a historical wine estate that sits on the picturesque island of Porquerolles. The estate is the latest winemaking venture from the Chanel group, which also owns top estates in Bordeaux and the Napa Valley. Sharing the same philosophy as its sister wineries, Domaine de L’lle invested in a stellar winemaking team, enlisting the help of Pierre Etcheberry and celebrated winemaker Nicolas Audebert – who is in fact, a local to the region.

Vines were planted on different strategic plains of Porquerolles and under their visionary and watchful eye, the island reclaimed its agricultural character. It sprung back to life; an oasis in the middle of the Mediterranean. The vines populated its gentle slopes and fuelled the chatter in the village. The vineyards were in fact some of the first in the region to be classified as Côtes de Provence, due to the quality of the wine produced.
