The Domaine Borie La Vitarèle was created in 1990 by Cathy and Jean-François Izarn. Uinnfortunately,  Jean-François passed away in 2015 after a tractor accident. Cathy and their daughter Camille are still running the domain Borie la Vitarèle.


The domain, located in Causses et Veyran in the North of Beziers, Hérault. A 13 ha domain with clay-limestone, schist and gravelly soils. Here, the vines don’t produce much but the fruit is very concentrated . The wines have a great ageing possibility.

The Syrah, the Grenache and the Mourvèdre are cultivated for the AOC. Bordelais are also cultivated to produce some Vins de Pays. A domain certified in organic farming and biodynamic method where the ploughing is favoured to control grass growing and where natural harvest is used. The vinification is done without chemical input, the fermentation and the ageing sare perfectly guided by Cathy and Camille. They don’t use new woods to preserve the purity of the fruit.

Colourful wines, « a superb range of products » Jean-Pierre Coffe says …

Wines that leaves few people indifferent, going to the domain is enough to understand that the terroir is exceptional.
