The reputable Domaine des Creisses lies in the heart of the village of Valros, located in the Languedoc region, halfway between Pézenas and Bezier.
The domaine dates back to the 19th century and started to make wine in 1904. The vineyard is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Cinsault.
Philippe Chesnelong has run the property since 1998 and soon after this arrival went about making changes to the vineyards and winery to make the domaine more sustainable, with a particular interest in the workings of the terroir. Philippe is supported in the winemaking by his cousin Louis Mitjavile, an outstanding producer and wine consultant from Bordeaux. Together they contribute to the success of the Domaine and its two wines les Creisses and les Brunes
