Winery Notes: Patience, know-how, observation and intuition are the essential qualities to create and age our wines. Our team has shared this goal of excellence for more than 150 years. This passionate quest for making Rhône Valley wines was born in the prestigious vineyards of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Ogier ages the greatest appellations of the Rhône Valley in our ancient cellars. The Côtes du Rhône “Héritages” is crafted by the personality and the history of Ogier, as well as by the wine-growing area of the Côtes du Rhône, where fruit, spices and generosity dominate. Côtes du Rhône Heritages Rouge is comprised of a selection of vineyards situated on the Villafrancien terraces of St Marcel d’Ardèche, on the hills of Avignon and Roquemaur. This rouge is best complemented by savory red and white meat, casseroles, spicy dishes and cheeses.
