As heirs of the first pontifical vineyard planted by Clement V in 1309, before Châteauneuf-du-Pape, we, the monks and nuns of the Abbeys of Le Barroux, as well as the Caritatis wine growers, have seen the dawn of a more excellent way.
Located in a wild and breathtakingly beautiful natural park, shaped by creation and by the patient hands of Man, an unexpected terroir is revealing, after a considerable amount of work, vintages with the most luminous colours : a light is beginning to shine from our mountains…
The vineyard is nestled in a Biosphere Reserve on the slopes of Mount Ventoux and dominates by its altitude and coolness its closeby and prestigious neighors of Vacqueyras, Gigondas and Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
With our wines we wish to share with you the treasures of rural and monastic souls. In the wine glass, the innocence of farmers who are in touch with life’s truths and the rhythm of nature sings together with the innocent spirit of the monks, who ceaselessly contemplate the Beauty of God .We desire our wines to be a journey to the peaks, from the visible to the Invisible.
