Grenache

Known as Grenache, or Garnacha (in Spain), this hot-climate grape vine can produce high-intensity, high-alcohol, flavorful medium-bodied red wines. Thinner skinned and low in tannin, Grenache is staple grape for not only producing red wine, but also Rosé. Ever hear of a “GSM” blend? Grenache, while lovely on its own, is a great partner to blend with Syrah, it’s bigger and bolder friend, as well as Mourvèdre. Mostly grown throughout Spain and in Southern France, particularly the Southern Rhône, Grenache is becoming increasingly popular in other hotter-climate regions. A go-to glass of wine for the end of a long work day!

In the heart of Pays d’Aix, Château de Calavon belongs to the Audibert family, who have been making wine in Lambesc for 5 generations. It is, without doubt, the oldest vineyard in the surrounding area.

The village of Lambesc is well known both for its historical and economic reputation. In the 18th century, Lambesc hosted the General Assembly of the Villages of Provence, and was known as The Little Venice of Aix. Many private mansions still reflect that period. Today, the village is also known for its exceptional terroir, since it is the most important wine production of the département. It is also one of the only vineyard areas in Provence that is 100% organically farmed. Their commitment to organics is unparalleled.

Today, major renovation work has been done in both the winery and the cellar in order to modernize. The vineyard has been restructured, new varieties have been planted. The story continues, with the aim of making the Château de Calavon a great reference point in its field.

With winemaker Sébastien Philibert at the helm, Château Calavon perpetuates tradition, aiming for the highest quality of wine with balance and finesse.
