Want to know more about the region?


In wine terms, the Die area is included in the Rhône Valley region (though it doesn’t fit into either north or south categories); the town of Die is 50km (30 miles) southeast of Valence and the vineyards follow the Drôme River, a tributary of the Rhône. The vineyards are some of the highest in France (higher than most in Savoie, for example), lying between 400 and 700 meters with a climate that is a cross between semi-continental and semi-Mediterranean.

Wondering who grows this wine?

The “Vignerons du Mont Ventoux” winery is a cooperative founded in 1924 by a small group of winegrowers who chose to join forces and pool their means of production. Today, Vignerons du Mont Ventoux has 27 employees as well as 120 winegrowers with a total surface area of 1,000 hectares: 750 produce AOC Ventoux and 250 produce vins de Pays and table wine. This winery groups together 5 districts: Bedoin, Crillon le Brave, Flassan, Saint Pierre and Modène.

Who is on the label?

Every sip of these wines, produced from the best Glera grapes from vineyards in the province of Treviso, is an invitation to perceive through our five senses and to be seduced by the Grapes Goddess represented on the label.

This wine is made in the right spot–even the city’s slogan agrees!

The department of Luján de Cuyo has historically been the most important area to cultivate grapes for quality wines in Argentina and it is home to the most important and known Argentine wineries. Reaching almost 3,300 feet above sea level and located only 20 kilometers outside the capital of the province of Mendoza, Luján de Cuyo is, as its city slogan says, “The Land of Malbec.” 

2020 Year End Letter from CEO Dan Glisky

Navigating through the impact of wine tariffs on prices and margins, the negative effects of the strengthening Euro on the same, and the targeted closures of restaurants and our beloved hospitality industry due to Covid certainly made for a year we are not soon to forget. It was a privilege to navigate the company through this challenging time and to know with full confidence that we are prepared for whatever comes at us next –obstacles and opportunities alike.

A generous burst of blackberry flavors sets the scene for this attractive, softly textured wine. With light tannins and juicy fruitiness, the wine is full, generous and ready to drink.
