Say Perrin and you think of the magical castle Château de Beaucastel and the evocative Châteauneuf-du-Pape that is highly sought after worldwide. Beaucastel has been around since the beginning of the 17th century, but it was not until 1909, when the Perrin family became the owner, that the 100-hectare domain underwent a real metamorphosis. More than a hundred years later, and already in its fifth generation, the Perrin empire has grown to 325 hectares of vineyards, the majority of which are privately owned. After the success in Châteauneuf, the family started buying other plots in the southern Rhone. Today they are active in the Côtes du Rhône Villages, Vinsobres, Cairanne, Rasteau, Gigondas, Vacqueyras, even Beaumes-de-Venise and Tavel and for several months in Côtes de Provence with Château Miraval, the jont venture between Perrin and Jolie -Pitt (Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie). Each and every one of these plots are ideally situated, which are a maximum of 45 minutes from the home port of Orange and can therefore be inspected daily. The success that the family enjoys today is largely due to the now deceased Jacques Perrin, of the third generation, a real 'biodynamist' avant la lettre. His philosophy? Good wine is made by letting the grape run its course in the best possible natural conditions. And so it happened, because already in 1964 all chemical fertilizers and weed killers were banned from the vineyard. Nothing is left to chance in the basement either. The Perrins built an ultra-modern vinification cellar on the nearby La Vieille Ferme estate, equipped with all the technical gadgets. But above all, the family will go down in the history books as the master of blenders. It is undeniably the great secret of the Perrins, who are convinced that blending the right grapes in the right quantities makes for better wines. Something that is still done by the family every year. Over the five generations, the Perrin family has acquired several vineyards with the best terroirs in the southern Rhone Valley. These vineyards are managed and vinified according to the same principles and convictions as Château de Beaucastel. Within the 'Famille Perrin' range, you will discover the richness of the southern Rhone valley through several renowned appellations such as Gigondas, Vacqueyras, Vinsobres, Cairanne and Rasteau. Here too, the authenticity and essence of the terroir are central to all wines.

This red wine from Ventoux is a blend of Carignan: 10%, Cinsault: 5%, Grenache: 50%, Mourvèdre: 15% and Syrah: 20%. The wine matures for ten months in vats and large oak barrels. The wine is cherry red in the glass. This red Ventoux is authentic, genuine and tasteful. Juicy red wine with lush red fruit, cassis and blackberry on the nose. Fine spiciness and a final in fraîcheur.Ideal wine with southern dishes or simply for pleasure.
