DOMAINE LA SOUMADE is the story of one man, ANDRÉ ROMÉRO, a passionate wine lover who founded the Domaine in 1979. Today he and his son, FRÉDÉRIC, work to continue the tradition of creating beautifully balanced wines filled with a signature finesse. A new winery was built in 2002 and Stéphane Derenoncourt was brought on as the consultant winemaker. (Stéphane was declared by Wine Spectator in November 2010 to be the “the world’s hottest winemaker.”)
