About the Winery
Set on the right bank of the Rhne, a few steps from the historic site of the Pont du Gard, Vignerons Proprits Associs is one of the principal wine producers in the Rhone-Mediterranean area. Their vineyards are located in a triangle between the famous commune of St Hilaire dOzilhan at the heart of the southern slice of land bordering the Gard region and the Ctes du Rhne, then head westward towards Sommires, to the edge of the Camargue Region.
Close to the Mediterranean sea and the Roman city of Nmes, the vines are situated on a very healthy terroir thanks to dry, warm weather and a soil covered with rolled pebbles. The 2,700 hectares of sustainably-farmed vineyard extend in a complete circle around the city of Nimes, the unique vineyards supply a diversity of exposures and microclimates. All of the principal Mediterranean grapes are grown and vinified in their state-of-the-art cellars, along with international favorites like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The Saveurs du Temps range is a selection of their best parcels to get fresh, fruity and smooth wines whilst keeping a strong identity.
