Red wine : we produce two kinds of red wine : a traditional one, made of Carignan, Grenache and Shyraz and a “100% Carignan” one, for which we have selected our finest and noblest Carignan grapes. We keep a traditional winegrowing, with long stays (15 to 21 days) in barricks, in order to get a powerful taste and deep colors. Our wines grow for at least one year before to be put in bottle.

Pink wine : made with Cinsault grape, along with a bit of Shyraz. We use a method known as the “bleeding”, implying to separate the juices from the berries early during the winegrowing process. This method allows us to get light and light-colored pink wines, with fresh and fruity tastes.
