Long the home to some of the world's finest
value wines, the Southern Rhône's multifarious appellations, sites
and climates provide the perfect terroir in which to make
characterful, low intervention wines.
Working alongside Guillaume Gonnet, Val de Garrigue tracks down
parcels of wine from some of the best vineyard sources in the
region. A mixture of chalky clay and large round pebbles combine to
ensure that this meagre earth forces the roots to dig deep while
the 1000 hours of sun per year are reflected back up to the grapes
to assist ripening. The dry, sunny climate aids vine health and,
where needed,only organic fertilisers are used. The resulting wines
display an uncommon depth of flavour and character coupled with a
savoury balance and length that is their hallmark.
