Domaine Seguela is operated by Jean-Pierre and Trinidad Seguela, for whom wine making has been a family tradition spanning over 7 generations. Passionate about his profession and highly respectful of the "terroir" of his locality, Seguela has established the goal of raising the reputation traditionally attributed to his region of Roussillon, by producing wines of the highest standards of quality.

Like in all art forms, a successful creation is not simply explained by explicit technical criteria. It also depends on the careful negotiation of several interweaving factors, most of which require substantial investments in various resources, both human and financial in nature, which are often bypassed by contemporary viticulture.

The vines are between 30 and 100 years old, and cultivated bio dynamically on schist/gneiss soil that encourage deep rooting and low yields. The grapes produce a very pure, aromatic wine style that is backed up with the richness one can only achieve with old, low-yielding vines. There is an astonishing degree of vibrancy and balance in these wines.
