Domaine la Tour Vieille (Christine Campadieu & Vincent Cantié)
Domaine la Tour Vieille was created in the early 80s by Vincent Cantié (from Collioure) and Christine Campadieu (from Banyuls) from their respective family domaines. It now comprises 32 acres of vines on vertiginous schist terraces overlooking the sea which have to be meticulously farmed by hand, making harvesting more perilous than most. Buffeted by the hefty Tramontane wind, this is viticulture at its toughest.
With their viticulturalist Jean Baills, they have an excellent track record of producing lovingly-crafted wines, both still and fortified, with a strong sense of terroir and tradition.
