The first inhabitants of Montfaucon settled on the rocky hill in the prehistoric era long before the Greeks and the Romans arrived in the region. The site is exceptional; the hill on the border of the Rhône River offers natural refuge and habitation in its caves as well as a viewpoint of the Rhône and surrounding area for enemies and predators
Montfaucon is located opposite to Châteauneuf-du-Pape, just across the Rhône River. Our vineyards are spread out between Montfaucon and the two neighbouring towns, Roquemaure and St Genies de Comolas.
The original 18 hectares (1995) of vineyards have grown to 45 hectares by planting new vineyards and by buying old ones. Our vines are up to 90 years old with an average age of 40 years. All the vineyards are farmed at low yields.
This is a hit at the Cellar! We love Viognier and this is certainly a steal for the money. Clean, Crisp, but with a nice fruity weight making this wine very food friendly.
