In 1882, Jean Prat the elder, a 19th-century visionary, took over Domaine de la Baume, which had been lying fallow since the phylloxera outbreak. With the help of his sons, in the space of 20 years, he restored 100 hectares of vineyard, exported his production abroad and opened a shop in the Paris of 1900, newly restyled by Baron Haussmann.
After several changes of proprietor between 1947 and the present day, it was Joseph Helfrich, CEO of the Grands Chais de France group and 21st-century visionary, who took over at the head of this wonderful estate in 2003 and proceeded to establish its much-deserved international recognition. Supported by its history and terroir, Domaine de la Baume today produces authentic wines for authentic wine-lovers…
