Established in 1997, Domaine de la Marfée has 20 small plots scattered around the village of Murviel les Montpellier covering 9 ha. La Marfée is located in the prestigious appellation of Saint Georges d’Orques that has been renowned since the 18th century.
Piero Della Francesca is a master of the Italian renaissance. It is considered as the one who invented the art of perspective in painting. The name of the cuvée is a small nod to this notion of perspective, lines of depth of field, which I appreciate in a wine tasting.
