About Domaine Patrice Magni:

The family estate was created in 1940. In 1993, Patrice Magni took over from his father and grandfather's work and started running the winery on his own. Today, the estate encompasses 11 ha of vines, with 7 ha in Chateauneuf-du-Pape and 4 ha in Cotes du Rhone. The vineyard has a beautiful complexity of soils and part of the vineyards are on the plateau north of Chateuneuf-du-Pape "Le Bousquet" while the rest are located in the east and south of the appellation close to La Nerthe where the soils of red and yellow clays mix with chalk, fine loess and sand. The vineyards of the Cotes du Rhone are situated next to Chateau de Beaucastel, just after the limit of the appellation Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Patrice started quickly to work with the minimal use of treatment products. The harvest is done manually with a drastic grape selection in the vineyards. The estate started its own bottling from the best lots in 1999 for the whites and 2003 for the reds.
