Story

The wine
Terroir Daronton pays homage to the men who founded the Vacqueyras and Beaumes de Venise cellars in 1950 to provide the best possible conditions for making and ageing wines from their villages. Le Terroir Daronton epitomises the finest expression of Rhone Valley, as well as over 60 years of expertise handed down from generation to generation.
Terroir
Terroir Daronton Ventoux is made from grapes grown on three different types of soil, which explain its unique personality and suave flavour: hills with light sandy soil, slopes with zaffer, a mix of sandstone and sand sediment, and a terrace of fallen rocks propitious to winegrowing.

This gentle treatment results in naturally balanced and fruity wine,
