Vincent and Stephanie Boyer’s domaine in Visan is surrounded by remnants of winemaking history dating back to feudal times. Vincent's family resides in a fortified farmhouse built by Templar knights in the Middle Ages. An order of Christian crusaders who rose to great prominence and wealth in the 12th and 13th centuries, the Templars established many farms and vineyards. After time as a Benedictine, then Dominican monastery, the Bastide property continues the winegrowing tradition today. Vincent has followed in his father's winemaking footsteps, and together with Stephanie, also a trained enologist, they carry the domaine forward with innovation and focus. Their goal is to make the farm fully organic in the near future. Often playing second fiddle to the region's famed red blends, the white wines from the Rhône are not to be overlooked. This medium-bodied blend of viognier, roussanne, clairette, and bourboulenc bursts with generous aromas of stone fruits (apricot, peach), guava, passion fruit, peach blossom, and honeysuckle, before finishing clean and dry with a light squeeze of citrus. Sustainably grown, vegan.
