 Domaine de Font Sane
Font-Sane is situated in the heart of the Gigondas wine-making area. The domaine is comprised of 11 hectares (26 acres) in Gigondas and 4 hectares (10 acres) in the Cotes du Ventoux appellation. Thirty-five different parcels of land make up the 15 hectares. They are dispersed at altitudes varying from 150 to 350 meters at the foot of the Dentelles des Montmirail. The vineyards are farmed organically, without use of any chemicals. The wines are made from Syrah, Grenache, Cinsault and Mourvedre grapes. Vines are aged between 40 and 100 years old and Font-Sane has some of the lowest yields in the commune of Gigondas. The wine-maker, Veronique Peysson-Cunty, is the fourth generation of her family to manage this estate and make the wines.
