Patricia Boyer-Domergue has been at the forefront of change in Minervois since the late 1980s. After graduating from enology school in Bordeaux she moved to the Languedoc. First to Saint-Chinian, then La Liviniere. Her first vintage was 1990, shortly after she had bought the property, a beautiful estate with Roman roots and medieval relics. It lies near the village of Siran, in the heart of the ‘Petite Causse’, on the western limits of the Languedoc.   

Together with her then partner Daniel, a viticulture and enology professor, she set about replanting ancient forgotten vines such as Araignan Blanc, Picpoul Noir, Oeillade noir and the various Riveirenc. Their work reviving these grapes and highlighting Carignan and Cinsault, previously under-appreciated varieties, is now emulated by many others. In 1999 the area was granted cru status, and from 2002 through 2015 Patricia served as president of the Syndicat of Minervois La Liviniere. Since 2006 she has run the estate on her own.
