Vineyards & Viticulture
Just a short distance from Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, on the north side of the Alpilles, is Domaine de Trévallon, situated in the village of Saint-Etienne-du-Grès. Around the old farmhouse, the vineyards spread out over 17 hectares, carved into the northern slopes of Provence's Alpilles at Saint-Etienne-du-Grès in the Bouches-du-Rhône. Vines planted in 1973 by Eloi Dürrbach. The red comes from 15 hectares of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah.
Chalky white limestone and clay, very stony: Hauterivian and Barremian, second stage of the lower Cretaceous, less than 130 million years
