Domaine de Nizas was created in 1998 by the Franco-American John Goelet. It was his first winemaking investment in France, after establishing Clos Du Val in Napa and Taltarni and Clover Hill in Australia.
By the time Languedoc was associated with high volume and low quality wines, John Goelet wanted to demonstrate it is possible to create quality wines in the Languedoc. His trusted adviser, Bernard Portet, involved himself in identifying the appropriate parcels around Domaine de Nizas would allow the AOC and varietal wines. His goal was to reflect the local character, with the combination of Mediterranean scents and aromas and volcanic earth.
