Welcome to the Vaucluse, a southern Rhône wine region, just on the edge of Provence. Its sunny vineyards nurture an array of native grapes like Grenache Blanc, Clairette, Roussanne and Colombard, that make vibrant, bright-fruit whites. The nearest neighbours are famous wine regions Rasteau, Gigondas, Vacqueyras and Châteauneuf-du-Pape. It’s lucky enough, too, to enjoy the same climate and have similar soils. In the case of Willem the Silent and Châteauneuf, it shares an award-winning winemaker as well. Thierry Ferlay has won scores of Gold medals for many of his wines – from vins de pays to Châteauneuf. Enjoy the tantalising aromas of fragrant white flowers and abundant, fresh peach and apricot fruit. Ideal as an aperitif or with risottos.
