The Côtes du Ventoux GRANGE DES DAMES is elaborated by the Vignerons du Mont-Ventoux so that they obtain a wine matching perfectly the criteria of the appellation, a reference-wine representing an optimal value. It derives from grapes harvested on the whole area of production of the winery: Bedoin, Saint-Pierre-de-Vassols, Crillon-le-Brave, Flassan et Modène. The vineyards are established on the south slopes of the Mount-Ventoux, the “Giant of Provence” benefiting of a very important exposure to sunshine and sheltered from the excesses of the Mistral. The altitude of the vineyards ranges from 200 to 580 metres.
