About Domaine Danjou-Banessy
Benoit took over the vineyards in 2001, and was joined five years later by Sébastien, who had been working as an English teacher. They are now not only custodians of the family’s winemaking heritage, but also of their stock of fortified wines. The brothers were also the first generation of the family to introduce still wines, dry white and reds made from old vines of local grapes, for example the rare Carignan Gris. They now produce 40,000 bottles a year.
