Winery Profile

Standing in Véronique Peysson’s sunny courtyard, she showed me the mountain range upon which the vines of the prestigious Gigondas are perched. Pointing to the very top, she said, “Those are my vines”. They seemed ridiculously high and, to the naked eye, to have no access road but those were indeed her vines.The famous battering Mistral Wind does many things and when your vineyards are up high – intermingled with the mountain, it adds flavour into the wine. It literally blows the flavours from the mountains and valleys flora into the grapes – delicious notes of forest pine trees, straggling herbs and olive groves all permeate the grapes.

Honestly, the proof is in the tasting. La Mistral also acts as a purifier by blowing away dust and pollution increasing sunshine hours by seeing off rain clouds and clearing rot by drying the grapes.

Today Veronica and her husband Bernard combine tradition with technology to produce their wines, thereby helping to defend and extend the reputation of this great region.

The property has approximately 16 hectares, divided into Gigondas (10.50 ha), Ventoux (4.60 ha) and table wine (0.59 ha).
