“Domaine de la Damase is run by Sebastien Latour, my good friend” says Hobo winemaker Kenny Likitprakong, “and his parents. They are really humble people who work the land and everything it has on it. When I’m there, we are always harvesting something; hunting for something like animals or truffles, or thinking about food in some way.  But the food is simple and Provençal.”

“I think the winery has been around about 8 generations or in their family for 8 generations – I forget which one.  Old by California standards in any case.  They farm about 80 hectares or more, but most of the wine is sold off to negociants early on.  Their own bottlings are small.”
