Since 1941 their only aim has been to produce great Rhone Valley wines whilst respecting their terroir and their identity.

The rounded pebbles of the Rhone, the Southern sun, the Mistral, the emblematic grapes from the Rhône Valley : Syrah, Grenache, Viognier – these are the fundamental elements that define the identity of Campuget.

Their philosophy is simple : constant improvement of the quality of their wines and a better knowledge of their terroir and vines ; after all, everything begins with the vine……

The Vineyard is situated 15 km South of Nîmes near the village of Manduel, right in the heart of the ‘Appellation d’Origine Protégée’ Costières de Nîmes. It’s principal characteristic is it’s soil formed of ‘gress’, an accumulation of rounded pebbles that have been rolled by many overflows of the Rhone river thousands of years ago..

These pebbles permits the vines to grow in the best possible conditions and thanks to this natural soil filter, the vine’s roots can easily draw the necessary water for their growth. The vines also benefit from the Mediterranean sunshine, which bring the grapes to perfect maturity and allows them to be picked at maximum phenolic maturity in early September.

The average age of the vineyard is about 25 years. The main varieties of grape are Syrah and Grenache for the reds and rosés and White Grenache, Roussanne and Viognier for the whites, as are the most renowned vineyards in the Rhône Valley.
