Domaine des Fées

Frederic Mefrre's family have been grape growers for three generations, cultivating the land and selling their fruit onto local coop until Frederic decided to take a stab at winemaking. After a period in Chile, Frederic began to make a small amount of wine in a corner of his dad's barn using borrowed equipment from friends in Seguret. Domaine de Fée's - or 'Fairy Domain', so called because of the proximity to Fountaine de Fées was born. The vines are found in Sablet and Seguret and Villedieu.

Domaine de Sarrelon

Les Vignerons D’ Estézargues is a cooperative with a difference. The group of 10 vignerons in Gard in the South of Rhône share a winery and resources but vinify their grapes separately, making cuvées instead of batches like most cooperatives. They also all make natural wine, which is extremely rare if not totally unique to Les Vignerons D’ Estézargues. Sharing a winery like this enables the vignerons to save a huge amount on winery overheads which is passed onto the consumer who gets amazing quality wines for a fraction of the price of most other wines.

Domaine de Villeneuve

In 1993, Philippe de Roy du Bliquy, an Advertising mogul from Paris was on the hunt for some vineyards and stumbled upon the then run down Domaine de Villeneuve in the Northern corner of Chateauneuf du Pape close to Chateau de Beaucastel. Together with a good friend, Stanilas Wallut and their families, they begun restoring the 8.5ha, using biodynamic practices to heal the vines which are now certified Biodynamic by Ecocert. Only a small amount of vines had to be replanted which means that nearly all of vines are now between 30-100 years old.

Jean David

Domaine Jean David is a small domain in Seguret of Côtes du Rhône. When Jean David first turned his hands towards being a vigneron, he spoke to his father about the benefits of organic faming. His father, however, wasn't so sure but after some persuasion allowed Jean David to have 5 of his 17 ha as a test patch. That was in the 70's and the rest is history. Jean David's father permitted him more and more hectares until the entire domain was certified organic by Ecocert ('87), allowing Jean David the freedom to progress with his philosophy.

L’Anglore

From Bee Keeper to influential vigneron, Eric Pfifferling lives a life as close to nature as any. His work demonstrates energy, life and precise craftmanship. Eric inherited 4ha of ancient vines from his grandmother in Southern Rhone's Tavel in 1988, later adding 3ha in Lirac. The soils are rich with gallets, identical to those found in neighbouring Châteauneuf du Pape. Initally Eric sold his fruit on to the local cooperative in Tavel, before deciding to make his own wine. After many trials, his first proper vintage was 2002. In the cellar, Eric is unique.

Agnès et Philippe Badea

Agnes and Philippe Badea used to work at Domaine Jean David before moving on to start their own project in the Côtes de Rhone in 2012. The pair work with young and old Grenache vines which Agnes and Philippe are in the process of converting to organic. 2015 will be their first totally organic vintage.
