In 1920, the Mourre family left France and moved to Algeria in North Africa, where they produced wine for 42 years. Upon their return, they purchased the Domaine Le Colombier. Jean Louis was immediately enrolled on the estate after his studies in geology, making his lifelong dream of producing fine wine come true. His knowledge is unlimited and fascinating. The Domaine Le Colombier produces around 7,000 cases of wine per year, with planting of old Grenache vines, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Carignan.
