Winery Profile

Recently promoted from AC Village to a fully-fledged Cru (to rank alongside Gigondas, Vacqueyras, Tavel, Lirac and Châteauneuf-du-Pape), exciting changes are happening in the hamlet of Cairanne.

This is in no small measure due to the patience and knowledge of the Chair of the Appellation for the past 20 years, Denis Alary – a quiet thoughtful man and one of the nicest people you are ever likely to meet.

The first Alarys arrived to cultivate the vines here in 1692; ten generations on, Denis, supported by his family, produces exceptional wines.

Denis works the ancient soils, slowly and by hand. The soil is turned with organic input only, leaf removal and low yields.They hand harvest, apply due diligence on their sorting table and very softly press. Then the varietals are vinified separately – Grenache, Syrah and Carignan (average vine age 35 years) are the ingredients. These wines represent the very heart and soul of the Southern Rhône.
