Croix des Vents
This project focuses on Bordeaux varietals made in an accessible yet complex fashion from a warm-climate vineyard in the South of France. Croix des Vents wines are named after a compass, symbol of the four winds, because they are produced in the far South of France, between the Mediterranean coast and the Cevennes. Here, the mountains embrace the vineyards of the Pays d’Oc appellation like an amphitheatre and offer a rough and rocky terroir for the vines to grow. In this windy area, where the vines sway in the cool mountain breezes, you can often see weathercocks perched on the top of the wineries, watching over the vineyards and cloudy skies ahead.
