Domaine des Bosquets has deep historical roots in Gigondas. It was first mentioned as a vineyard site in 1376. The most recent chapter of the history of Domaine des Bosquets began in 2010 when Julien Brechet took charge of the property. His brother, proprietor of Château de Vaudieu, sent him to Château de Pibarnon in Bandol to begin his training before finishing his informal studies at Château de Vaudieu. Under Julien’s leadership andand with an assist from a small team of six employees, he has begun since 2015 to convert the property to certified organic farming with the goal to have the estate farmed biodynamically as well.
