Description

Domaine Vallis Petra, Vacqueyras, Intuition; We nodigen je uit om mee te gaan naar het zuidoosten van Frankrijk waar de Rhône vallei gelegen is. Op het grondgebied van Vacqueyras, wat staat voor stenen vallei; is een klein wijnhuis gelegen genaamd Vallis Petra, wat staat voor rotsachtige vallei… Dit wijnhuis staat onder leiding van Nelly; een gepassioneerde en zeer bedreven wijnmaakster die het vak al 25 jaar uitoefent. In 2007 erfde Nelly het wijnhuis van haar groothouders en nam ze de precisie over waarmee haar grootouders het vak uitvoerde…

The vineyard's subsoil is mainly limestone soil which consists of rocks, red and brown clay. The vineyard is located at an altitude of about 120 metres. 

With love and care for the earth, the vineyard has been in certified organic farming since 2010. This involves organic tillage on the estate such as using natural organic fertilisers, naturally maintaining the right soil values and balancing biodiversity. This requires a lot of extra work and lower yields. However, the satisfaction of caring for the earth cannot be expressed in yields
