Our hopes are our weapons. If our ramparts are no longer strong, it is because our hands have been working the vines and our thoughts have been focused on the land.
This is a wine from the Vacqueyras vineyards situated at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail, more precisely on the Commune of Sarrians (Vaucluse). Here, the high Garrigues made of worn pebbles associated with the Mediterranean climate work wonders for the wine.
