ABOUT

Domaine ‘La Luminaille’ in Rasteau, Southern Rhône, takes its name from the light which shines on the estate’s olive trees during nights when the moon is full. Owned by Julie Paolucci’s family for five generations, Julie started her professional career as a sommelier in Paris before returning to her roots in 2014, where she now runs the family estate with Nicolas, her partner. There are 10 hectares under vines which are expertly tended to, following an organic approach that allows the unique terroir of this charming estate to fully express itself. Varieties planted include Marsanne, Clairette, Bourboulenc, Grenache, Carignan, Mourvèdre and Syrah, which go into the production of Côtes du Rhône Blanc, Rasteau and also two delicious dessert wines: Vendanges Tardives ‘Les Gélègrières’ and Vin Doux Naturel ‘Grenat’. These are delicately made wines, with pure varietal typicity and freshness that is unique for such a warm region.
