Domaine Montirius is a family owned winery run by Christine and Eric Saurel. The winery is located in Vacqueyras in the southern Rhône valley, near the village of Vacqueyras itself. They have 58 ha of vineyards split on several different parcels. Montirius was an early adopter of organic vine growing and moved to biodynamic winemaking in 1999.
The vineyards have several different soil types and biotopes. The garrigue is also frequently present. The vineyards are planted with typical southern French varieties: grenache, mourvèdre, and syrah are the most important. The winery is traditional, with both concrete and stainless steel fermentation vats. It has also been built taking into account the biodynamic principles.
Domaine Montirius makes a range of both red and white Rhone wines in the appellations Vacqueyras, Gigondas, Cotes du Rhone and Vin de Pays.
