Featured Winemaker : Domaine Des Enfants
Domaine des Enfants was founded by Marcel Buhler, a Swiss-born perfectionist who arrived in Roussillon in 2007. More than half of his 23 hectares of vines, located in 20 parcels in seven communes, were planted before the Second World War, and some of the vines were even planted over 100 years ago.
From the beginning his intention was not only to make great wines, but to also preserve the cultural landscape and heritage of the region. He tries to show other ways of cultivating using horses and plows instead of herbicides, exhausting handcraft instead of mere efficiency. Marcel’s wines are the result of working within and together with nature. In his wines Marcel is looking for the sheer sweetness of fruit but also levity and the retention of fresh fruit acidity. Marcel wants to give people, through his wines, the opportunity to enjoy life, to indulge and to share this pleasure with others.
“The foundation of Domaine des Enfants is the realization of a dream – to be one with yourself, others and nature. Therefore our wines are the result of working within and together with nature.The love and energy invested in the care of our powerful and exceptional vines gives us peace and satisfaction.
To witness how these frugal plants thrive and gain strength due to our care fills us with pride, and is an enormous gratification. With our work we want to use our creativity in order to create something extraordinary, which not only gives us and other people pleasure, but also brings everybody closer together.
We hope that our wines will be able to present people with new ideas, imagination, and maybe even touch them on a deeper level.Our wines are the expression of our inner thriving for perfection and amelioration, with our aptitude for manual labor and for using our creativity. They are the fruits of our passion.
We want to give people the opportunity to enjoy life, to indulge and to share this pleasure with others. Our wines would like to inspire conversations, not about them, but about life itself. The wine is our means to engage with other people, to share thoughts, awake emotions, and sometimes, take part in it.”
