Domaine de Puilacher The Domaine de Puilacher, situated in the village of the same name, is part of a collection of small villages encompassing the wine region of Vicomte d'Aumelas, which is most famously known for an old ruin which dominates a small hillock overlooking the river Hérault basin.

The variety of vines lend themselves very with to the scenery typical to many Mediterranean areas, with it often described and referred to as the "French Tuscany" by many artists.  Domaine de Puilacher has been part of the Farges family for a number of generations, handed down from grandfather to son and also father to daughter.
