Our Wines

  • 13 grape varieties may be used in the composition of Châteauneuf du Pape. This wine is made with Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre.
  • The typically Mediterranean climate is held in the sway of the Mistral, great and forceful wind born out of variations in atmospheric pressure between Northern and Southern climates.
  • Gigondas is located less than 10 miles of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, it can be considered as a mini version of the Chateauneuf-du-Pape but in a more rustic vein.
  • The vineyard are mainly within the Parc Regional du Luberon, which is equidistant from Avignon, Aix-en-Provence and Manosque. The average altitude of the vineyards is 984 feet above sea-level, and the grapes are harvested relatively late.
  • The Ventoux mountain is home to a large number of rare or endemic plant species, as well as to many kinds of deer and birds of prey. This vitality and profusion of scents and savors is a potent influence on the wide range of AOC Ventoux wines.
