DOMAINE LA MILLIÈRE

Though the origins of the name of our estate remain uncertain – Millière could come from “miliaire” the word for milestone in Roman times – one thing that is sure is that its viticultural vocation is closely linked to the history of the Arnaud family.    It was in the 1940s that Fernand Arnaud, already the son and grandson of winemakers and Michel’s grandfather, bought La Millière. At that time on the estate, vineyards were side by side with fruit orchards including cherries and apples.
