THE BARNIER FAMILY

« Between tradition and modernity »

The Barnier family has always lived in Sarrians, its so beloved land of origin, spreading out between the Rhone and the Dentelles de Montmirail.
The spirit of enterprise and the notion of word well done are shared values through the generations.
Emile the great-grandfather and Georges the grandfather were both wine growers. Then Jean and Nicole created the winery which is today run with a lot of enthusiasm and dynamism by Jean-François and Céline.
Deeply attached to their peasant values, they harmoniously develop the international famous nursery together with the wine-producing of the “Domaine”

“Exploring the Ampelography”

Right in the heart of “Provence” we invite you to discover the “Domaine” together with the Nursery activity.
We offer you a unique visit which will allow you to discover the vineyard as well as the elaboration of wines, to learn how to recognize the wines as well as an initiation of wine tasting with our oenologist.
We invite you to the discovery of our “collection” vineyard planted with 40 different varieties, real reflection of our traditions and of the desire to share our passion.

THE VINEYARD

“In the heart of Provence”
Located in one of the most beautiful regions of France, the 100 hectares of wines composing our Domaine are established on stony and calcareous-clayey soils. Our vineyard is planted with no less than 50 different varieties, flooded with sun and ideally purified by the Mistral wind.

THE WINERY

“The modernity to the service of quality”
The winery is fitted out with state-of-the-heart equipments. The stainless steel tanks are equipped with thermo-regulation circuits for perfect temperature control during fermentation.
The concrete tanks allow our wines to grow and mature in a traditional way. Some of our wines benefits of an ageing in oak barrels.
