Chantecôtes is located in Sainte Cécile Les Vignes, in the heart of Rhone Valley vineyards in the

south-east of France.

 

The village is typically Provencal, with its fountains, old stones and chapels. It is surrounded by vines, some more than 50 years old, that blossom under the sun.

 

Our wine cellar was created by a group of passionate winegrowers in 1927. In the ninety years since, their descendants have perpetuated the tradition of producing high quality Côtes du Rhône wines. We cultivate the vines with utmost care and respect for the environment. The expertise of our winemaker and his team allows for the elaboration of authentic and typical wines of Côtes du Rhône. The more tannic wines are aged in fine French oak barrels.


A great variety of grapes are grown in Sainte Cécile Les Vignes. Two of the foremost, white Grenache and Viognier, bring lightness and freshness to our white wines. Our blends from Grenache, Syrah, Carignan and Mourvèdre varietials bring the balance, fullness and tannic structure expected in red wines.
 

Our wide range of wines attracts enthusiasts throughout the world. This is demonstrated by the numerous awards obtained at the Lyon International Competition, the Vinalies Internationales, and the Macon Wine Competition…
