A terroir of excellence in Roussas
The Domaine de Grangeneuve is rich in history! There is evidence of Roman occupation on this site, including a large vineyard named Villa du Fayn, dating as far back as the first century AD.
The uniqueness of our location, in the Northern aspect of the Southern Rhone valley, allows for a successful cultivation of these grapes; bringing to our wines elegance, refinement, and subtle expressiveness.
The Domaine de Grangeneuve property can be divided in two zones: ”Grangeneuve”- a soft sloping hillside, and “ les Esplanes“ - a plateau with an elevation of 160m.
The Domaine de Grangeneuve vines were first planted from 1964 to 1974.
A recent addition to our vineyard includes the Clairet vines, which are organically cultivated 15 kilometers away at Domaine des Lônes (close to St Paul Trois Chateaux). The Clairet brings its own personality due to a different soil made of clay and sand which is well suited for white and rosé wines.
In 1992, we embarked on a renovation of the vineyard. The classic grapes of the the Rhone Valley are now well represented at the Domaine de Grangeneuve including Syrah ( 45% ), Grenache (45%), Cinsault (8 %), and Mourvèdre (2%) which are used for the red wine, and Viognier (60%), Marsanne , Roussane and Grenache blanc (40%) which are used for the white wine.
