Domaine la Soumade
was established by André Roméro in 1979. Since 1990 the whole
production has been bottled at the domain. In 1996 when his son Frédéric Roméro
had earned his BEPA Diploma in viticulture and oenology
he returned to the domain to join his father.
In 2002 a new cellar was built by Route d'Orange
a few hundred metres from the old cellar which today is used by
another wine grower Georges Perrot.
The domain covers 27 of which one ha is Gigondas and the rest is
situated in Rasteau.
