It comprises 10,000 acres of vineyards situated between the Rhône and Languedoc. It was known primarily for bulk juice, but the region has made the transition to producing high-quality yet affordable estate wines like Cadenette. Cold macerated, fermented, and aged in tanks.
Flavor Profile: Medium-bodied dry. Crisp and elegant with plenty of strawberry and raspberry. Pair with salads, sandwiches, pizza, and picnic foods.
