Corinna Faravel was born in Germany and for years she worked at different domains in
her home country making white wines. In the late 90'ties she
participated in a wine tasting course in Suze la Rousse. Then
she decided that her future should be devoted to making wines in
Maybe the decision had something to do with the fact that
she met Thierry Faravel, who together with his brother and
sister runs one of the best domains in Gigondas Domaine
She married Thierry Faravel but wanted to make her own wines and
therefore in 2000 she bought 7,5 ha. of vineyards situated in
the Ventoux appellation. Her first bottled vintage was 2004.
Later she bought 1 ha. with old Grenache vines in
Lafare. In 2006 additional 3 ha. in the Beaumes de Venise
The wines were until 2008 made in a rented building in Beaumes de Venise,
but since vintage 2009 the wines have been mnade in a new cellar in Lafare. Here at
the one ha with old Grenache is also built a domicile for Corinna and
Vinification and ageing take
place in cement tanks. No wood was used.
The vineyards are since 2012 certified agriculture
