Gentilice Viognier

Story

The wine
This wine is the result of an extremely rigorous selection conducted by a handful of winemakers.
Ventoux jewel of our production, we named this wine "Gentilice" (from the Roman clan at the base of the social organization of the Empire) to make a nod to the Roman era who founded the vine growing in our village. The word "Gentilice" was used until the 16th century in France to designate members of a family, and is the origin of the word "gentleman".
Thus we highlight by that name the noble character of this product.
