In 1993, we began the task of restoring a medieval priory and vineyard that had been slumbering quietly for centuries in the beautiful foothills of Mont Ventoux, in the southern Rhône region of Provence. Though several parts of the house date back tothe ninth century, the estate was named La Verrière in 1427, after the glass-blowing workshop established there by Aliot de Montvin. With our passionate commitment to authenticity and quality, and inspired by the natural beauty of our setting, we have dedicated ourselves to restoring the priory and restructuring the estate’s 35 hectare (87 acre) vineyard to the highest international standards. Our guiding principle is to preserve the integrity and history of the estate and its “terroir”, while enhancing its exceptional character. Having been exposed to many different cultures and approaches, and inspired by the Romans’ belief in the value of things shared, we have sought to combine grassroots wisdom with respect for nature, international know-how and avant-garde techniques.
