Presentation of Domaine Belle

Domaine Belle has roots in Hermitage that go back several generations. The estate was founded by Louis Belle in the 1930s. At the time, the harvest was sold to local merchants or cooperatives. Louis Belle became one of the founding members of the now famous Tain l'Hermitage wine-making cooperative. In 1971, this began to change when the Domaine Belle, then run by Albert Belle, began buying additional plots of vines in the area. Domaine Belle built its first modern winery and cellars in 1990. Philippe Belle has been in charge of the estate since 2003.
