Noble wine merchants by Claude Vialade : providing a bridge between winegrowers and the market-place

I would like you to discover the men and women winegrowers who are the bedrock and sourcing base of our company. They collaborate closely with our oenologists, Thomas, Benjamin, and this year, Ricardo from Argentina.
All these winegrowers come with moving stories, and plenty of common sense. They have personalities as strong as their terroirs, each one unique and magnificent.
For years now you have been putting your trust in me, in us, and in our collection of grape varieties and fine wines. It is on these winegrowers’ estates that we make such wines. They excel and put heart and soul and savoir-faire – I can assure you - into those selected wines destined to carry the names of their châteaux.

Domaines Auriol are wine merchants, and I am proud of it. I have infused this profession with a notion of the “noble merchant”, providing a bridge between winegrowers and the market-place.
- Our oenologists bring to the winegrowers a vision of the markets: we help them in the selection process, in barrel-aging practices, and we encourage them to go organic, to return to long fermentations.
- For you, my friends and clients, Auriol means facilitated logistical support, guaranteed traceability, peace of mind, clearly identified Domaines, highly personalised and carrying the winegrowers’ signatures.

Occitanie is a land resplendent with its history. Our Châteaux and Domaines are numerous, and they existed long before the fashion for varietal wines.
