The History of Domaine Rosier

After leaving our native Champagne area, we arrived in the Aude on 1 January 1982, full of hope and energy to a vineyard property in the village of Villelongue d’Aude.

We began by restructuring the vineyard and took out all the old red Aramon vines in order to make way for Chardonnay, Chenin, Mauzac and Pinot.

Our first ‘cuvée’ was created in 1983, when we produced 600 bottles. The following year 6000 bottleswere produced under the ‘appellation’ Blanquette de Limoux.

In 1985, as we had too little space in Villelongue, we moved to Limoux to larger premises and were thus able to increase our production, thanks for the most part to our expansion into the American market.

We now produce 650,000 bottles of Blanquette de Limoux and Crémant de Limoux in a specially designed, ultra modern ‘Chai’ (wine production plant and storehouse) and have established a presence outside France in sixteen countries around the world.
