By dint of faith and sheer hard work, the wine-growers of Gigondas have replaced the olive tree with the vine. They have thereby made a name for themselves. Here, wild and uncommon, a bird watches over the domain : the Grand-duc owl which sings, (known as "Canta duc" in Provencal), his name has become over time "Santa Duc." Generous, fruity and concentrated, the vines reflect the soil and the way in which they are produced
