Domaine Philémon is located in Villeneuve-sur-Vere, a small village on the Vere River in between Albi and Cordes in the northeast quadrant of the Gaillac appellation. The Vieules have had a vineyard in Villeneuve since 1804. Today the vineyard is run by Mathieu Vieules who has twenty hectares of vines in production along the Cordes plateau on south-facing slopes with a calcareous soil. A good proportion of the vines are more than fifty years old. The vines are trained in the gobelet fashion meaning that they are head pruned and yields are kept exceedingly low, 35hl/ha on average.
