Domaine Herve Souhaut

The Domaine Romaneaux-Destezet was created in 1993 by Herve Souhaut. Over the successive years, Herve has continued to plant new vineyards and purchase existing older vineyards (from 50 to 100 years old). The current surface of the Domaine is 5 hectares.

The type of vines used are of local origin and representative of the Northern Rhone valley: Viognier and Roussanne for the white wines, Syrah and Gamay for the red wines. Geologically, the soil is consisted of a strong acidic granite.

Sensitive from the very start of his activity by the need for maturing wines the most natural way possible in order to express the potential of the soil, Herve Souhaut moved towards the production of grapes resulting from a respect for the environment and for the agriculture. Convinced that one should not stop at this stage, he decided, with the respect for natural wine making and helped by his training as a biologist, to produce wines without additives.
