Based in the heart of the Languedoc in Lezignan-Corbières, Domaines Auriol is a family-owned winery set up in 1995 by the formidable Claude Vialade. As the daughter of a former wine estate manager, wine has always been second nature to Claude from early days where she would follow her father around the vineyards as a child to becoming the Director of the AOC Corbières Syndicate. Today Domaines Auriol is a producer as well as a négociant who prides itself in its Occitan roots. Domaines Auriol is also one of the largest producer of Organic wines in the area and has been very keen on its environmental credentials for the past 25 years.
