The harvest started mid-September when the grapes reached full maturity. The winemaking is traditional with up to 3 weeks of maceration to extract sufficient tannins for the structure while maintaining a smooth texture. The wine is aged on its fine lies for 6 months, 100% in a stainless steel vat.
Vignerons Ardéchois is a group of co-operative wineries created in 1967 and comprising 14 cellars located in the southern half of Ardèche. Winemaking is carried out by the cellars according to the characteristics of each product in terms of grape variety, terroir and equipment. The Union’s oenology department oversees the winemaking and decides upon the most suitable approach for each wine. Its bottled or bag-in-box brands are packaged in-house.
