Southern Rhône, France
In 2015 two historic co-operatives, the Vignerons de Caractère in Vacqueyras and the Vignerons de Balma Venitia in Beaumes-de-Venise united to form Rhonéa. We have carried the wines from Vignerons de Caractère for many years, and have always appreciated the extraordinary quality and value they offer. While Rhonéa farms about 2800 acres, that total divided among their 236 vignerons works out to less than 12 acres per person. In addition to making wonderful cuvées, Rhonéa bottles the best growers’ wines under their domaine name.
