LA FONT DE SALIGNAN ESTATE
For 25 years, solid links have been forged with Rhone winegrowers.
Thus, VIGNOBLES & COMPAGNIE can now count on 260 hectares of vines in partnership throughout the southern Rhône Valley. From these partnerships are born quality wines reflecting the terroir and the sharing of knowledge and skills. VIGNOBLES & COMPAGNIE resolutely turned towards the southern Rhône, is committed alongside emerging appellations as today with the winemakers of the Cairanne appellation, the latest Crus des Côtes du Rhône in 2016.
New domain to become partner winemaker of our Winery, La Font de Salignan in Cairanne under the leadership of Nicolas Flavien. Old goblets of century-old Grenaches, an exceptional terroir, passion and elbow grease, a domain to be followed alongside Vignobles & Compagnie.
Cairanne, an exceptional terroir
Backing onto the south of a hilly massif that separates the Aygues and Ouvèze valleys, the appellation extends over the sole town of Cairanne in the north-west of Vaucluse. Three large groups share the 1,088 hectares and each participate by their typicity in the elaboration of elegant and complex wines: the Aygues terraces to the west, the Miocene hills to the north, and the garrigue to the south of the village. Cairanne benefits from a dry Mediterranean climate, characterized by a lot of sunshine and a strong influence of the Mistral, which promotes the good health of the vines throughout the year.
