Since that time, two generation have been managing the company with the same passion and philosophy for quality.Today, they are famous in France and all over the world for the quality of the wines of Provence and for their premium hand crafted sparkling wines.
This Rosé wine is produced from traditional regional grapes, . The vineyards of this winery are planted mainly on the very dry slopes of Jean Giono' s Provence. Viticulture is very respectful of the environment even though the wines benefit from modern winemaking technology. Wine production in the Alpes de Haute Provence takes place between Durance and Verdon. Some winemakers are producing wines under local AOP, others under the name of Country Wine IGP.
