These grapes were discovered in Provence in France, where vineyard plots between gently sloping mountains and the Mediterranean Riviera are influenced by abundant sunshine and the famous “Mistral winds”. From the best selection of plots amidst the garrigue (the iconic Southern French underbrush), these vineyards are known for their low production and concentrated flavors. The proximity of the sea, the sunshine, and the granitic and schist-specific soil give this wine its great character. Grapes are sorted and destemmed, with cold maceration of up to one full day followed by fermentation over 7 days to preserve the fruity aromas. The final blend is produced by traditional Provence methods, vinifying each grape variety separately, then blending them together for ideal balance and character.
