Learn About Domaine des Cantarelles
Cantarelles is owned by Jean-Francois Fayel. The estate is located
southeast of the city of Nîmes. This area was once the delta for the
Rhone River and is considered part of the Rhône Valley as

and cailloux-based soils (similar to Chateauneuf-du-Pape's) create
a spectacular environment for Cabernet and Sauvignon.
