The grapes come exclusively from the “Vallée de Correns” in the heart of Provence. The entire valley is dedicated to organic agriculture growing wineyards, vegetables, fruit and olive trees. The first mention relating to vineyards and olives groves have been found in official records dating back to the year 1002. In the 15th century the local population came to hide in caves in the valley to escape from the plague epidemic which affected the whole of Europe. Today, Correns, with a population of 800 souls, is regarded as being the “Leading Organic Village in France”.
200 hectares have been planted with Côtes de Provence appellation distributed amongst 20 owners who joined their talents to produce this wine.
