Les Vigneron du Pic -Devois de Perret

Les Vignerons du Pic are a collective of winemakers from the villages of Assas, Baillargues, Claret and Saint-Gély-du Fesc. Sharing a winery in Pic St. Loup, each bottle independently under their own label.

The soils in this area are truly diverse from one parcel to another: hard and soft limestone, dolomite, marl, and limestone boulders are predominant on the Mediterranean and the vineyards enjoy a median altitude of 150 m. To the east is the Rhône, Roussillon to the West and the Mediterranean sea constitutes the southern border. This region is considered the cradle of French viticulture dating back to the Romans who introduced vines between 500-600 years B.C.

Adequate moisture coupled with hot days and cold nights make for ideal ripening conditions for the Syrah grape as well as the dominant red Rhône varietals Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, Cinsault and Carignan. The Devois de Perret Coteaux du Languedoc Rouge, made by master oenologist Bruno Dereluzzi, the head winemaker of the facility, is an offering of 100% declassified Pic St. Loup fruit.
