Grenache Blanc
Corbieres, France

The Montredon Cooperative Winery was established in 1938. It is situated in a splendid location of the Corbieres region amidst impressive surrounding hills. The vineyards cover 8 hectares near the Labade Hills. The parcels are sheltered from the wind; this enables the grapes to reach exceptional levels of maturity and concentration. The vines are grown on a mosaic of terroirs with many geological nuances – limestone, clay, shale and pebble.  Winemaker Dauga, can also be viewed as an artist and an author, expressing the terroir and producing real, authentic, well-made styles of wine. Enjoy this Grenance Blanc with fish, shellfish and seafood.
