Centred around Gigondas and Vacqueyras in France's Southern Rhône, the Domaine du Grapillon d’Or is a stone's throw from its more famous neighbour, Châteauneuf-du-Pape. This family-owned winery, with its 19 hectares of sun-kissed vineyards, is cradled by the majestic Dentelles de Montmirail, a range of peaks which offers superb conditions for raising traditional Southern Rhône cépages.

 

Following in the footsteps of her father, Bernard, Céline continues the to craft wines in the family tradition. A focus on small parcels of vines yield wines of depth and concentration. True expressions of their terroirs, the reds offer dark berries, spices, dried herbs, and garrigue. The white is rich and mineral and elegant.
