Product Overview

Domaine de Durban is owned by the Leydier family who took over the Domaine in the mid 60s. It is regarded as one of the leading producers of Muscat de Beaumes de Venise and is the personal favourite of Tom Stevenson, editor of Sotheby's Wine Encyclopedia. Durban has recently built a new winery which houses the production of the red wines of Beaumes de Venise which in 2005 were awarded Cru status.
