Domaine de Marie
After acquiring the boutique hotel La Bastide de Marie, an 18th-century farmhouse converted into a Provencal Mas, Jean-Louis Sibuet discovered a new passion: making wine. He teamed with cellar master Arnaud Bressy and renovated the vineyards to relaunch Domaine de Marie in 2000. The three vineyards have individual microclimates, allowing aromatic variety and personality to the wines. The domaine is located in the Luberon, a massif famed for its variety of flora and fauna.
