Cairanne Wine

Established during the middle ages with the backing of the 'Knights Templar', the Cairanne vineyards received Villages classification during 1967.

Producing over an area of around 920 hectares and having a typical Mediterranean climate, Cairanne's appellation law is very strict for it's reds and rose, dictating that they must consist of at least 50% Grenache grapes, and 20% Syrah or Mourvedre grapes. The whites do not have such a ruling, and can consist of a variety of different types alongside Grenache Blanc.
