“Produce the best from what the land can give you with great affection and care.”
This is the motto of the owners of Domaine de Léoube – one of the most beautiful, protected sites in Europe and home to Château Léoube.
The Léoube estate was bought by the current owners in 1997. Seduced by Léoube’s history and beauty, they set out to make wines with character that were true to their terroir, while remaining respectful of nature. Following a back-to-basics philosophy, they believe in strengthening the land’s biodiversity and natural defences by employing traditional growing methods and using only natural, non-toxic treatments. As such, the grapes are all harvested by hand, in tune with the seasonal and lunar cycles. Their belief is that if you respect the balance of the plant then you will get the most balanced fruit in return, and the flourishing of the vines (and olive trees) at Léoube stand as testimony to this approach.
