Domaine Boucabeille is a small family owned winery in the Roussillon area in the south of France. Today it is Jean Boucabeille who manages the property, works the vineyards and makes the wines in the cave. He has taken over from his father, Régis, although Monsieur Boucabeille senior still gives a helping hand.

The vineyards extend over 18 ha split up on different parcels. Some are beautifully located on the slopes of the Força Real hill. The vines planted in the vineyards are a mix of syrah, mourvèdre, grenache and carignan, a classic blend for the region. Domaine Boucabeille also makes some white wines from maccabeu and viognier. The names of the cuvees are: Le Blanc and Le Rosé, unsurprisingly, and for the reds Les Terrasses, Monte Nero, and Les Orris (which also exists in white). The wines are full-bodied with plenty of fruit and freshness. Some get a careful élevage in oak barrel.
