Domaine Milan was created in 1956 by Robert Milan, Henri’s father. It was here that Henri planted his first vine at the age of eight. Back then, the land was devoted to conventional farming methods. This was one of the big changes that were heralded when Henri took over in 1986. The land had been spoiled by excessive synthetic chemical treatments during the 1970s and early 1980s, so it was at this point the younger Milan moved towards organic production.

The appellation of Vin De France does not allow producers to display the vintage of a wine on its label, which is why you will note Roman numerals on the bottle of Domaine Milan VDF instead. It could be said that this rebelliousness is typical of Henri Milan. He broke away from Baux De Provence AOC so that he could have more freedom to produce the wines he wanted to make.
