Take the D68 north of Châteauneuf du Pape, turn left up a signposted winding tarmac road through the vineyards to the cellars. The vineyards show the classic ‘pudding stone’ soil of the region. Owned by the Fabre and Abeille families, this is one of the few domaines to have mature vintages for sale. Very friendly enthusiastic welcome, especially on weekdays.
Open for sales and tasting seven days a week 08.00-19.00, but only a limited tasting available at weekends. To visit the cellars or vineyard, phone in advance. Groups welcomed by appointment. English spoken.
