The Vineyard

Ventoux wines benefit from an unspoilt natural environment of exceptional biodiversity. Listed as a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1990, the Mont Ventoux site is the privileged setting for vineyards worked with respect for the region’s natural environment and for its historic and cultural heritage.

On the slopes of the mountain, amid holm oak, white oak, cedar, beech, larch and pine, the Mediterranean and Alpine worlds meet and embrace. The area 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 savours is a potent influence on the wide range of AOC Ventoux wines.

This is undoubtedly a land renowned for its gastronomy, immortalised by Alphonse Daudet in his story of a food-loving priest: “Les Trois Messes Basses”. It was at the Château de Trinquelage, in this very area, that Dom Balaguère was overcome with temptation at the thought of the amazing Christmas dinner promised by his sacristan… But who could blame him?

Inspired by this profusion, Ventoux red wines are smooth and rich in flavours, ranging from red-berry fruits and spices to leather, liquorice and truffle. Their reputation has gone before them, even to America… In their wake, the fresh, lingering rosés are redolent with notes of cherry, raspberry and blossom, while the whites are suggestive of iris, acacia and citrus fruits…
