Story

The wine
While the origins of Muscat Petits Grains grapes in the heart of the Dentelles de Montmirail date back to antiquity, it was in 1348 that Beaumes de Venise became part of the Comtat Venaissin, home of the Popes for nearly 2 centuries. Pope Clément VI made Muscat his official aperitif, enjoying it chilled in spring water.
