Cave de Tain
On the left bank of the Rhône, between Lyon and Valence, the Hermitage hill dominates the Crozes-Hermitage appellation. From north to south, the vineyards of Saint-Joseph, Cornas and Saint-Péray spread out on terraces, on the right bank.
On their five cru vineyards, such as in Collines Rhodaniennes, the winegrowers of the Cave de Tain l'Hermitage offer an unparalleled variety of vineyard plantations, with access to all terroirs.
In the Cave de Tain, approximately 370 farmers are united in a company with a vision, a passion for quality and a feeling for the market. In the northern Rhône, they are leading with a share of more than 50% of production. The vineyards are located on the right bank, St. Joseph, Cornas and St. Peray, as well as on the left bank, Crozes Hermitage and Hermitage, of the Rhône and are located a maximum of 20 kilometers from the Cave. For many international winemakers, the wines produced here are the reference for their Syrah production. The crown jewels of the company are its own vineyards on the Hermitage mountain. The steeply terraced vineyards with a granite soil bring out the best in the Syrah grape. International ratings between 90 and 100 points are “normal” for these wines. Cave de Tain owns no less than 25% of this unique piece of wine-growing area.
