Domaine de la Palud, located south of the town of Orange in the Rhône area, Marie-Laure Grangeon produces top wines with know-how handed down from her ancestors. Domaine de la Palud has been the family property since 1841 and prior to that, the vineyard belonged to a Provencal noble family for five centuries. On the vineyard there is still a building (a tower) dating back to the 14th century.
Marie-Laure Grageon’s wines are excellent examples of what the Châteauneuf-du-Pape district and Côtes du Rhône have to offer.
