Grapes on the vine at Domaine du Faucon Doré

Visit special friends to Postcards from Provence, Jean and Sylvie Beaumont at Domaine du Faucon Doré at nearby Faucon. Sylvie will welcome you at the cellar door (don’t be shy, go right in, this is a working ‘farm’), wave to Jean and son Damien (trainee vigneron) as they work the fields (following a strictly organic regime).

It is an easy stroll to their ‘cave’ at the edge of the village in the late afternoon, taste some or all of the 11 labels from white to rosé to red, buy to drink with dinner or to take back home tightly packed.

Sylvie speaks very good English and is the local information point of contact, so ask for recommendations for all your interests.

Reds to match the greats of Bordeaux – the ruin of the château dominates the skyline as you drive through vines flourishing in fields covered with large smooth stones. There are many cellar door tasting rooms in the village, be ready to pay for the tasting if you do not buy. Châteauneuf-du-Pape is an appellation (AOC) and a village.
