Ventoux Red

At the foot of Mont Ventoux, 30kms from Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the domain is grouped around an old farm typical for the region, where two enormous 100-year old cypress mark the entrance and form a natural archway. In the subsoil numerous networks of steams dating from Romans times bring water to the farm. The Quiot Family bought this domaine of the 15th century in1871.
