The Pierrevert region is in the most northern part of the Provence, situated in the foothills of the Alps. What makes this area unique is the overlap of influences from the Rhone and Provence leading to some very interesting wines. The altitude of Pierrevert provides its wine with a freshness and vivacity unknown to the lower, warmer appellations of Provence and the Rhone.
Pierrevert has beautiful surroundings in its countryside and is known for its goats cheese, lavender and almonds. Chateau de Rousset based in the Pierrevert wine region is a family run vineyard that characterises the spirit of this fascinating appellation. Pierrevert wine is one to watch for the future, combing the best elements of the Rhone and the Provence.
