Côtes du Rhône blanc
Rhône :: France
The Co-op was formed in 1956 by a handful of winemakers keen to pool their efforts. Today it comprises fifty different winemakers. To minimize their impact on the land, the winemakers strive to pursue a “lutte raisonnée” form of viticulture .
The winery is located on the right banks of the Rhône, between the Pont d’Avignon and Pont du Gard in Rochefort du Gard. The name of the winery comes from a Romanesque chapel of the XI century, perched atop the village.
Together the growers cultivate 500 hectares of vines with the majority in the Côtes du Rhône appellation.
