Our most important resource is our land: the diversity of our terroir is paramount. Location, microclimate and excellent grapes are what make the terroir of Le Domaine Font Sarade so special.
The vineyard lies along the plateau of La Ponche, to the north of Vacqueyras and produces rich, powerful wines. The Domaine extends across 35 hectares and now offers several appellations. Our wines form a diverse collection. Our blends ensure that the quality of each variety is brought out in full, with each of the different terroirs contributing its own subtle nuances.
In an effort to ensure compatibility between our grapes and the earth in which they are planted, we carry out soil tests to determine which variety should be used in each area. Environmentally conscious, we are committed to integrated wine production. We cultivate each vine with the utmost care.
All my efforts are focused on a single aim: to make ever better wine by continuing to use the traditional techniques that draw on what I have learned from my predecessors.
