Caves Saint-Pierre, Skalli, CSP, France, Vallée du Rhône
In the South of France, the Rhône Valley vineyards have thrived along the banks of the Rhône river for over two thousand years. Steeped in history, the Rhône Valley abounds in variety. The different soils, micro-climates and vines provide an ideal habitat for prestigious appellations like Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Gigondas, Vacqueyras, Côtes-du-Rhône, Côtes-du-Ventoux, Tavel to the South... Saint-Joseph, Crozes-Hermitage to the North...
It takes enthusiasm, perseverance and the talent of key individuals to reveal the hidden treasures of a wine region… In the 50s, a winery, established in Châteauneuf-du-Pape since 1898, built ageing cellars in the Saint-Pierre area of the village. Business expanded rapidly as vinification, blending and ageing techniques were perfected. The newly constructed cellars' first wines were given the name « Caves Saint-Pierre ».
Over time, Caves Saint-Pierre broadened its knowledge of the surroundings vineyards. Solid partnerships were established with local winegrowers and Caves Saint-Pierre became deeply involved in every aspect of winemaking: rigorous selection of terroirs, blending favouring Grenache - the king of southern Rhône grape varieties -, vinification methods respectful of terroir and individual grape varieties, traditional ageing in casks or oak barrels... Everything was set in motion to achieve optimum results: full-bodied wines combining force and elegance yet retaining the uniqueness of terroir through a complex pallet of aromas.
The wines of the Caves Saint-Pierre are now available for the enjoyment of lovers of top-quality French AOC wines who are looking for quality and typicity.
