Located in the heart of Provence, between the lacy peaks of the Dentelles de Montmirail and the imposing Mont Ventoux, we enjoy an ideal climate throughout the year.  Indeed, the sun, rain and the mistral accompany us and help us shape the fruit of our labor. Created in 1990 by John and Nicole Barnier, Fontaine du Clos is now run by their son Jean-Francois and his wife Celine. The cellar has over 32 different varietals because we are both  wine growers and a nursery for grape vines. These two activities allow us to have a better understanding of the vine and develop  a comprehensive range of products. That is why besides Vacqueyras and Côtes du Rhône, you will find wines in single varietals such as Merlot, Chardonnay and Muscat petits grains. You can also taste the Chenin, the Caladoc or Pinot Noir in our blended product line "Aura". Our passion for wine led us to create this special product available in white, rose and red. Aura is an exceptional product that will surprise you.

We organize tours of our vineyards and wine cellar. As wine growers and  producers of grape vines, we bring to your visit a complete knowledge from planting to bottling. With our collection of 32 varietals, visitors can see, feel and touch the different varieties and understand the concept of terroir (the earth) of the different French regions. Tours are in French and in English every Tuesday afternoon from 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM  June to September 2012. (Reservation required) The topics discussed during this visit are:

1.                      -The concepts of ampelography (study of the characteristics of the vine)

2.                      -The visit of the cellar with an explanation of the winemaking process

3.                      -An introduction to wine tasting

The price of this tour is 3 € per person and free for under 18. We also organize a breakfast «Vignerons» in the vineyards every first Tuesday of each month (June, July, August and September 2012) from 8:00 to 10:00 at the price of 3 € per person (by reservation only).

 

These activities are usually very popular and help to create a close relationship with the wine growers and allow one to perceive the world of wine differently.

For any request, please feel free to contact us by phone, fax or mail. We will be very pleased to answer you.
