Domaine des Alexandrins

Alexandre Caso and Guillaume Sorrel are the men behind Domaine des Alexandrins. Having begun the enterprise as an agency supplying specialised labour for vineyard work, Alexandre’s first employee was Guillaume, son of renowned winemaker Marc Sorrel. The business did so well that Alexandre soon offered Guillaume a partnership.

Having made a success of their business they then decided to diversify a little and rented some neglected vines in Saint-Joseph in 2009, a hectare in Crozes-Hermitage in 2011 and a further parcel of Saint-Joseph at Tournon in 2012. They now control some 10 hectares in total.

Using the facilities of Chapoutier, Marc Sorrel and now their own winery at Mercurol they have made a variety of wines. They use no pesticides or herbicides and work each vineyard with real respect for the environment. The harvest is all done by hand and brought to the stone walled winery where bunches are destemmed and fermented in concrete followed by a three day maceration. The wines are then aged between one and four years in barrel. The results are very promising indeed.
