Domaine de Millet was first an Armagnac producer, now in the winemaking game.  Famous for its fiery Armagnac spirit, Domaine de Millet produces some of the best value wines in all of France.  Devoted to mixed farming and the production of Armagnac, the domaine today has 50 hectares of vines for the production of Côtes de Gascogne wines.  The vines enjoy a north western position on the green hills where the soil alternates between clay limestone and the sandy soils known as 'sables fauves'.  Francis Dèche, the proprietor, who follows in the footsteps of five generations has a policy of quality: traditional grape varieties, vineyard cultivation with respect to the environment and constant development in the methods and means of vinification.  With his daughter Laurence, who joined him in 1999, they sell a full and varied range of products that are just waiting to be discovered. 

The Gascony region, famous for Armagnac production, is now the source of good country wines.  Domaine Millet blazed a trail for many followers, but it remains one of, if not the, best.
