Story

Location
At the foot of Mont Ventoux, 30kms away from Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the domain is grouped around an old typical farm of the region, where two enormous 100-year old cypress mark the entrance and form a natural archway. In the subsoil numerous networks of steams dating from Romans times bring water to the farm. The Quiot Family bought this 15th century domaine in 1871. The direct view of the Mont Ventoux is magnificent.
Terroir
