Damien Rozier - owner, winemaker, viticulturalist, export director, builder. As one man bands go, Domaine Rose-Dieu is the pinnacle of achievement. Like many of the new wave of Rhône producers, despite the labour intensive nature of the work, Damien is on a quest to preserve and nuture old vineyards trained to gobelet. He believes that this produces the best fruit and most vibrant terroir expression. The wines crafted by him are very much cast in his mould - handsome, charming, energetic and bursting at the seams with personality. Like the man himself they are irresistibly likeable.
