The Domaine de la Grange des Pères is located in Aniane , in Languedoc . It produces small quantities of two of the region's most sought after and expensive wines . The estate was created in 1989 when Laurent Vaillé bought land near the Mas de Daumas Gassac. The land was rich in limestone, boulders and glacial scree and required a great deal of blasting and bulldozer work to produce an ideal terroir. Laurent Vaillé already had an excellent track record, having worked with Coche-Dury at Meursault, Gérard Chave at Hermitage and Eloi Durrbach at Domaine Trévallon in Provence. Organic and biodynamic methods are carried out in the vineyard but without certification . In May 2021, Laurent Vaillé suddenly disappeared, leaving a great void in the world of wine. Since then, his brother Bernard Vaillé has continued to vinify the wines of the Domaine.
