The Côte Rôtie Vineyards

We are on one of the oldest vineyards in France.

Highly appreciated by the Greeks and Romans, its reputation developed in the Middle Ages and began to be exported during the Renaissance. Martial, a Latin poet born in 40 A.D., already spoke of the wines of the Gauls and more precisely of Vienne.

A legend tells that Lord Mauginon, who had two daughters, decided to share his property between them. One was brown and the other blonde, hence the name Côte Brune for the vines located north of Ampuis and Côte Blonde for those located south of Ampuis.

At the beginning of the 19th century, the vines covered about 300 hectares, but everything almost disappeared after the phylloxera attack (aphids that attack the roots of the vines), then following the destruction of two World Wars, there were barely 40 hectares of vines in use.

Today, the vineyards cover 255 hectares (630 acres), in the communes of Ampuis, Tupin Semons and Saint Cyr / Rhône, including 73 parcels. This appellation has a semi-continental climate, i.e. dry and hot in summer, with mild autumns and harsh winters, with regular rainfall the rest of the year.

The Condrieu Vineyards

This appellation is spread over 3 departments (Rhône, Loire, Ardèche), and 7 communes (Condrieu, Vérin, St Michel/Rhône, Chavanay, St Pierre de Bœuf, Malleval and Limony).

It is located on the right bank of the Rhône, on steep hillsides, at the foot of the Massif du Pilat (Regional Natural Park).

Condrieu is a wine of controlled origin since 1940.

It also almost disappeared following the great phylloxera attack, then the abandonment of the vines during the two World Wars. At that time, it was only a very small area but slowly grew from 8 hectares in 1965, to 20 hectares in 1986, and 150 hectares today.

The wine produced by this vineyard is a white wine, rich in alcohol, fat, supple, but with freshness.

It is very fragrant, giving off floral aromas such as violets, and fruity notes of apricots, peaches, and citrus fruit.

The abuse of alcohol is dangerous for your health, consume in moderation.
