This is explained by the typicity of our vineyard, mainly made up of terraces (or “Bancaous” in Provençal). This type of culture requires more time for the vines to acclimatize well to the soil and become quite robust.

For the red and rosé:
Grenache, Mourvèdre, Syrah, Muscat de Hambourg, Tibouren and Cabernet sauvignon.
