The Ventoux region, located in the southern south, is known for its waters, its ski resorts, its gastronomic recipes but also for all the wines they produce in their beautiful vineyards. White wines are rare, mainly red wines and some rosé wines that are produced on the 6700 hectares of the appellation. These are made from several grape varieties, mainly black Grenache and Syrah for the reds and rosés, Clairette, Bourboulenc and white Grenache for the few white wines. The reds are characterized by the richness of their aromas and their suppleness, their ageing potential is from 5 to 20 years. Their colour is brilliant ruby in colour; red fruits and spices characterise these wines. For the few whites, they are characterized by fruity and floral aromas. Grenache noir and Syrah are mostly used to make wines that are supple enough for the majority but whose diversity makes it possible to find more powerful wines!

The vinification, traditionally carried out in vats, can be done in mono-varietal, but is more generally done in blending, which allows to have a balanced product due to the different climatic conditions present in the region (mistral, very hot summers...).
