 Domaine Montrose

The name Montrose refers to its geographic location on a volcano (Mont) and to the pink (Rose) flowering almond trees surrounding the vineyard.

The domaine was founded in 1701 when the current owner’s ancestor received his coat of arms from King Louis XIV’s counselor. Playing on the ancestor’s name, Joseph Alazard, the coat of arms displayed three lizards.

Today, Bernard Coste is the 11th generation of the family to operate the vineyard, now joined by his son Olivier.
