Set in a secluded valley between the picturesque village of Séguret and Mont Ventoux, Domaine de Mourchon was created by the McKinlay family in1998. The vineyard had some mature vines but no facility to make wine so, using modern technology and high standards, a winery was constructed in 2000.
Domaine de Mourchon lies in the beautiful Dentelles de Montmirail hills at the centre of a triangle made up of Mont Ventoux in the East, Vaison-la-Romaine to the North and Avignon to the South-West.
The terraced hillside vineyard, at an average altitude of 350m, is based predominately on clay and grey limestone which, combined with the microclimate, gives the location a terroir of unique quality. Careful organic techniques with combined traditional and advanced methods of vinification results in well-structured wine with pronounced fruit aromas and pure, strong colour. Organic certification is expected in 2020.
