Domaine Houchart is located at the foot of Mount St. Victoire near Aix en Provence. Today, the domaine is owned by Genevieve Quiot, who inherited it her great-grandfather, Aurelien Houchart. By the 1850's, Aurelien had become an influential figure in wine and society. Having created one of the largest domaines in Provence, he also counted significant individuals of his day, including the famous post-impressionist painter Paul Cezanne who frequently came to visit. This beautifully appointed 200 acre estate is planted with 10 traditional grape varieties to a wide range of soils that include red clay, sandstone, gravel and chalk. Today, the estate is managed by Florence and Jean-Baptiste Quiot, who represent the fifth consecutive generation of the family to work on the estate.
