About Domaine Courbis
Nestled in the heart of the Rhône Valley, Domaine Courbis is one of those treasured wineries where history and innovation meet to craft exquisite wine. A family-run venture, the winery traces its lineage back to the 16th century, showcasing an impressive array of richly cultured heritage wines.
Domaine Courbis sprawls across 21 hectares, capturing the sheer beauty and diversity of the vine-growing land. The site is strategically located at the confluence of the Rhône and Isère rivers, which provides the terroir a unique microclimate that generously imparts unparalleled character to the wines. Each vine variety on the property is cultivated under the watchful eye of the Courbis family, ensuring their grapes reflect the full potential of their terroir.
Over time, Domaine Courbis has persistently innovated, seeking to bridge the gap between tradition and contemporary winemaking techniques: The winery was among the first in their region, to adopt the use of stainless steel tanks in the 1970s. This avant-garde approach, combined with respect for the tradition, has played a vital role in the winery's ever-growing reputation on the international wine stage.
The Courbis brothers, Laurent and Dominique, took over the domain in the 80s. Today, they harmoniously blend tradition with innovation, to keep the vineyard at the forefront of producing some of the most exciting and expressive wines in the Rhône Valley. Their array of wines radiate refinement and elegance with a touch of the courbis' characteristic liveliness.
To visit Domaine Courbis is to experience a journey in taste, capturing the essence of the Rhône Valley encapsulated within each bottle. Transcending generations, the winery stands as a testament not just to the Courbis lineage, but to the enduring allure of French winemaking tradition and innovation. However, while Domain Courbis may champion their history, it’s their forward-thinking approach that sets them apart, propelling them to heights of unparalleled success and recognition in the wine world.
