On the foothills of white-caped Mt. Ventoux, 350 meters above sea level, Even tends to 25 hectares of old vine Grenache along with a bit of Syrah, Cinsault, and Carignan. The area has a climate of extremes - snowy winters, sunny Provencal summers, and the powerful Mistral wind - which creates wines with tremendous character. The Bakkes farm their vineyards organically, following the biodynamic calendar to enhance the vitality of their ecosystem and express their terroir in full. Grapes are all hand-picked & hand-sorted; Destemming depends on the vintage. In the cellar, Even’s work is light-handed. He uses indigenous yeasts, bare-minimum sulfur, trusts the grapes to adapt to their own ferment temperature, and likes to give them air early on. After 6 harvests offering very different possibilities, it can be said that he uses no recipes. Rather, he attempts to express the grape varieties in each specific vintage.
