This interesting producer with very expressive wines is situated right between the Rhône valley and Provence. The vineyards are protected by the mountain Mont Ventoux and the mistral wind is blowing away humidity that might otherwise cause the vines to rot. The conditions are excellent to grow vines with a minimum of pesticides.
Flos du Fontaine is one of the largest producers of vines in France and they are doing research to explore new breeds. The focus is to obtain vines with low yield in order to get concentrated grapes that make rich wines and also to make them more resistant to deseases. They are currently producing wines from 32 different grape varieties.
