Brut Rosé - Domaine Milan
Nestled at the foothills of Provence’s Alpilles mountain range the story of Domaine Milan started in 1955. In 1986, Henri Milan took over with the ambition of making the best possible wine and with respect to the environment & began working organically as early as 1988. With the help of famous microbiologist Claude Bourgignon, he created a soil map to serve as a guide for how to replant. The best suited varieties, however, were not necessarily those prescribed by the Baux de Provence AOP, so Milan withdrew from the appellation system in 2007, declassifying his wines to Vin de France and cementing his reputation as the region’s rebel.
In 2011 Henri's son Theophile began working the domaine with his father. Today he is responsible for all operations and handles vinification for the wines. In 2014, while on a trip to New York - Theo met Natalie, a Jacksonville native & close friend of Kathryn & Roberto's. Theo was introduced to Natalie through the wine world and as they say, the rest is history! In 2018, Theo & Natalie commissioned Roberto to update one of the labels for their wine which is currently being used for their Luna & Gaia wine.
