Reconquista is the story of our generation, that takes place between this very convivial country that is Spain and our French roots that are growing in Provence.
We gave up our dreams of becoming a toreador and a "pork butcher dancer" to become wine-growers in France, in the Alpilles. Our very frequent visits to Spanish bodegas jointly lead us to sharpen the way we perceive the high standards of any hedonist. As we live between our two loves, our next bottles may come from our selection of the nicest bodegas. Meanwhile, make way for our first three wine batches, that come from the domain.
It's in the south of France, in the Alpilles, at the gates of the Mediterranean Sea, that we're keeping up the wine-growing tradition in Le Grand Castelet domain.
Our Alpilles PGI designation is very recent. It's been acknowledged for just about 7 years and is cultivated on 1075 acres only. It comprises a few classic domains names and some that are still unknown – but with a bright future just like ours. The unsegmented 494-acre domain stretches along the Rhône river, with vines, woods, and crops, succeeding one another. At the end of a long path, bordered by a hundred centenary plane trees, the beautiful Provençal abode encompasses large farm buildings, where we turn our grapes into wine, sheltered from the blazing sun. On the white stone stands out the sundial that has been setting the tempo since 1740.
