The Oddbins Take

Some people, like Hobbits, like their homeland and see no reason to up sticks to pastures new (excepting the Bagginses, of course). Others are sprinkled with wanderlust and prefer to travel. The Collovray and Terrier families, for example, moved from Burgundy, where they make Pinot Noir to critical acclaim, to Limoux in SW France, where they have sniffed out another ideal terroir for the varietal - in the hot sun south of Carcassonne - where they are now making stonking, brilliant value wine.

Long-term friends, the Collovray family and Terrier families established a winery together in 1986, in their home region of Mâconnais in Southern Burgundy. They quickly gained recognition for their Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines. This led them to look for different region in France, with a similar climate, to again produce great Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Hence, Domaine d'Antugnac was born in 1997 in the Limoux region of South West France.
