REGION - Rhone Valley, France
In the South of France, the Rhone Valley vineyards have thrived along the banks of the Rhone River for over two thousand years. Steeped in history, the Rhone Valley abounds in variety. The different soils, micro-climates, and vines provide an ideal habitat for prestigious appellations like Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Gigondas, Vacqueyras, Cotes-Du-Rhone, Cotes-Du-Ventou.
Over time, Caves Saint-Pierre broadened its knowledge of the surrounding vineyards. Solid partnerships were established with local winegrowers and Caves Saint-Pierre became deeply involved in every aspect of wine-making: rigorous selections of terroirs, blending favouring Grenache - the king of Southern Rhones grape varieties - vinification methods respectful of terroir and individual grape varieties, traditional ageing in casks or oak barrels. Everything was set in motion to achieve optimum results: full-bodied wines combining force and elegance yet retaining the uniqueness of terroir through a complex palate of aromas.
It takes enthusiasm, perseverance and the talent of key individuals to reveal the hidden treasures of a wine region.
