Winemaker's Notes

Blend: 65% Grenache, 25% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah

Domaine La Garrigue recalls quintessential Provence: rugged, beautiful landscapes and honest, unpretentious people. The Bernard family, proprietors of both Domaine La Garrigue and the excellent restaurant "Les Florets" in Gigondas, are a generous, honest, and hardy lot. It comes as no surprise that their wines reflect their nature and character offering some of the most affordable and pleasurable drinking in Provence.

Domaine La Garrigue takes its name from the wild herbe de Provence and ground cover of Provence called Garrigue, a familiar scent often captured in their bottlings. The estate's excellent Cotes du Rhone, labeled "Cuvee Romaine" is named after the myriad of Roman artifacts that were excavated by archeologists on the property in the late 1970's and the early 1980's. Cuvee Romaine is a custom cuvee for Eric Solomon Selections made by famed Rhone oenologist, Philippe Cambie.
