Adrien Roustan began the estate in 2010 after returning home following stints at DRC and Turley. He took over 9 hectares from his father who had been selling all the grapes to the co-op, and the domaine has since grown to nearly 20 hectares across Gigondas, Vacqueyras and IGP plots.
Production has been certified organic since 2012. With key plots high in the Dentelles at 1700 feet elevation, Adrien chose the name Ourea (son of Mother Earth, Gaia) after the Greek God of Mountains. The estate is committed to heirloom varietals like Aramon and Oeillade, and has a penchant for 80-year-old tractors hidden in plain sight in the vineyards.
