Domaine de L’Ile Rose 2021
Domaine de L’Ile is situated on Porquerolles, a frankly stunning island off the south coast of France, accessible only by boat from Toulon or from a peninsula south of Hyeres. In fact the ferries stop in the evening much to the delight of the locals and with very little accommodation on the island it retains its peaceful charm once the ‘foreigners’ leave.
The history of the domain is intrinsically linked to the one of Porquerolles island, from Roman times. The former owner, Sebastien Le Ber, was the descendant of Francois-Joseph Fournier who bought the island in 1912 as a gift to his wife who had planted the first vines. He planted three ‘valleys’ of vines following a huge fire that burnt out the entire island along with forests, olive trees and citrus groves.
