Dominique Hauvette


Domaine Hauvette, Provence

Since the foundation of Domaine Hauvette, Dominique Hauvette has worked with an environmentally-friendly focus, converting the estate to biodynamic methods at an early stage. That will made her famous and re-known in the profession, benchmarking natural wines abroad. She decided to take a non-interventionist way of working during the vinification of her wines.
