We grow the following vine varieties:

Viognier
A scarce variety of white grape. Difficult to find and to grow, it is a rare and much appreciated variety. Its bright yellow colour gives a golden hue to the resulting wine. Due to its high sugar content and the grapes’ low acidity level, the wine resulting from this vine variety has a neutral taste and a high alcohol content.

Marsanne
A variety of white grape that produces a very strong and full-bodied wine, with a slight touch of spiciness. As it matures, the wine colour darkens, and it acquires a more complex taste and a thicker texture.

Roussanne
A variety of white wine that produces elegant and delicate wines. These wines tend to have a long life, as well as a floral bouquet which stresses their subtlety.

Malbec (Cot)
Black grape variety that produces purple and sweet textured wines, with a fruitiness reminiscent of berries.

Marselan
A black grape variety which is a cross between Cabernet Sauvignon and Garnatxa. The moderate vigour of the vine produces fragrant wines high in tannins, with ripe fruit and redcurrant aromas, amongst others.

Merlot
Black grape from a rather prolific vine. It produces wines of a deep red colour, with a touch of purple, which become darker and more intense as they mature. They are best enjoyed as young wines, or after just a few months in the barrel.

Cortese
Small white grape variety which is grown mainly in Piemont. The resulting wines are typically Italian, with high acidity, neutral taste and delicate aromas.
