A land of contrasts, and sometimes extremes, Mont Ventoux, with its wild summit, becomes enchanting as you descend its slopes.
The In Fine AOP Ventoux wines express this ambivalence. The climate and geology of Mont Ventoux facilitate the production of wines of character, freshness and elegance, typical of wines from this micro-terroir.

Story

The story
The vineyards on the southern slopes of Mont Ventoux, where we produce In Fine wines, benefit from alternating hot days in summer and cooler nights, which cooler nights, which favours the full ripening of the grapes and the expression of thearomas, while preserving a sensation of lightness and freshness that can be found in the wines. In Fine wines are modern and tasty, accessible to all and for all occasions.
Location
The vineyards extend over the rolling hillsides south of Mont Ventoux, in the form of a mosaic of plots where the hand of man is everywhere present between varied market gardening, table grape vines and orchards. The vineyards are often delimited by terraces held back by low dry stone walls built by the elders.
Terroir
Two of the three soils specific to the appellation are found: red soils resulting from the degradation of limestone, and soils made of a mixture of sand and ochreous clay favourable to the production of fine and elegant wines.
The Mont Ventoux and the Dentelles de Montmirail chain protect the vineyards from the excesses of the Mistral wind, while generating cool currents that favour cooler nights and better ripeness.
In the vineyard
The vines are cultivated in an environmentally friendly manner.
Vinification
The grapes are destemmed and crushed and then undergo a cold maceration for 4 to 5 days. The vatting lasts three weeks, with the wine being made with a focus on fruit and freshness. The alcoholic and malolactic fermentations follow immediately.
