Domaine des Homs

In the heart of the renowned Minervois wine producing terroir, the Domaine des Homs occupies the site of a roman farm where vines and olive trees were cultivated. The name derives from old elm trees which have now disappeared.   The 20 hectare domaine has been owned by the de Crozals family for three generations, a well established family of Languedoc wine producers.   Jean-Marc and his wife Anne both graduated at the Suze-La Rousse international wine university. They have brought their technical and commercial knowledge and experience to the domaine while maintaining family traditions and have built up, over the years, the reputation of the wines of the Domaine des Homs.     

   The Domaine des Homs vineyard is in the heart of the Languedoc on the foothills of the Montagne Noire in the Minervois Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée producing area. The Mediterranean climate is very hot during the summer with two cooling winds : - The humid ‘Marin’ from the east - The dry ‘Cers’ from the north-west.   The vineyard represents 12 hectares of AOC Minervois and 8 hectares of Vin de Pays.
