35 years ago, Jean Orliac swapped his home and job as an agriculture professor for a tent on a windswept mountain … and the prospect of no income for years. He took the family with him and together, they toiled to make the premium wines Jean always dreamed of …

Today, that same mountain (Pic Saint-Loup) is about to be made a Grand Cru — the pinnacle of French wine. And the buzz around the Orliac family’s wines continues to grow:

“The pioneering Orliac family’s dramatically situated Domaine de l’Hortus continue to fine-tune their expertise both in the vineyards and the cellar.” (The Wine Advocate)

If you need more convincing, here are top U.K. critics The Wine Gang on Dolines l’Hortus 2008:

“Another standout wine from Jean Orliac’s superb Domaine de l’Hortus, this is a wine of great finesse and elegance. Silky texture, spice, garrigue and leather combine in a restrained but supple, great value 50/50 Syrah/Grenache blend. 93 points.”
