Domaine des Amouriers is a family owned wine estate in the southern Rhone Valley, France. It is located in the appellation of Vacqueyras in Sarrians. Domaine des Amouriers belongs to the Chudzikiewicz family (sometimes written Chudzikievicz). It is run by Igor Chudzikiewicz and Patrick Gras. The name Amouriers refers to the mulberry trees that can be found on the property.
The Domaine des Amouriers has some 25 hectares of vineyards; 7 ha (going up to 14) are in the Vacqueyras appellation and the rest is Cotes du Rhone and Vin de Pays. The vineyards are planted with the traditional grape varieties in the southern Rhone Vally: grenache, syrah, carignan, cinsaut and mourvèdre, but they also have some more unusual varieties: merlot, caladoc and aubun.
Vinification is made in the traditional winery: The wine press is an old basket press, the fermentation tanks are solid concrete vats.
The range of wines go from everyday drinking 'vin en vrac' (bring your own container) over Vin de Pay, Cotes du Rhone to the cru wines of Vacqueyras.
