Domaine de l`Ameillaud has a long history dating back some 200 years. The first bottling at the place was done in the 1980ties. The owners today are Sabine and Nick Thompson. Nick, an Englishman, had an uncle who was Master of Wine and who gave him some inspiration and interest in wine. In London, he as a young man met a French girl, Sabine, grand-daughter of a wine grower in Cairanne. Not surprisingly the young couple moved to France. They both followed courses at the wine school in Beaune and when Sabine's grandfather offered them the job as managers of his domain 1983 their destiny was decided . After the grandfather's death, in 1991, they bought part of the domain from the heirs.
