Châteauneuf-du-Pape by Rémy Ferbras
Rémy Ferbras is a prominent vigneron in the Côte du Rhône wine scene. For this reason, at the Grandes Serres Estate, in the heart of Châteauneuf du Pape Appellation, the wines bear his name.
A great connoisseur of the vines and wines of this special territory, in the South of France, famous for having hosted the Pope and his court. In fact, the city of Châteauneuf-du-Pape was the summer residence of the popes during their stay in Avignon. A choice that was not made by chance, given the excellence of the nectars that were produced, already at that time, in the fourteenth century.
A special richness to which Rémy Ferbras has been able to give a genuine impetus. This is why its labels are so popular: they combine typicality, taste and balance, at a great price. A win for everyone!
His Châteauneuf-du-Pape Terre de Mistral comes from the best known local grapes, Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Vines that grow perfectly on sandy and calcareous soils, covered with pebbles, those characteristic “galets” that mark the landscapes of the vineyards.
