Les Vignerons d’Estézargues is a quite extraordinary co-operative – with only 10 members, it has been practicing natural winemaking for the past 30 years. Eight out of the ten estates are certified organic and the same philosophy in the cellar is applied to each one – no cultured yeasts, no filtering, no fining, and only a small amount of SO2 added at bottling. We have been importing from them for over a decade and love their wines.

The skill of Denis Deshamps, director and winemaker, is extraordinary – he is making low intervention wines in large quantities which requires a lot of skill and attention in both the vineyard and the winery. The wines are exported all over the world and have a great following. They are true wines of the southern Rhône, rich and generous with concentrated fruit.
