Is there anything more rock 'n' roll than a solid dichotomy? Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, how about sober wine? Oui, Vinsobres is French for sober wine, that deserves a 9-minute guitar solo, does it not? In fact, there's more than just the name that's rock 'n' roll about Vinsobres. Up until 2006 these wines were just labelled Cote du Rhone Villages, then they burst onto the scene as their own appellation, blowing the minds of any who came across them. Unlike other appellations in the Southern Rhone, such as Chateauneuf-du-Pape, wines of Vinsobres have also had the virtue to stay underground so they offer excellent value for money and also offer you the opportunity to tell your friends smugly, "I drank Vinsobres before it was cool!"


From the legendary Château de Beaucastel to the partnership with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie at Miraval, Famille Perrin has experienced more than a century of success. Voted Personality of the Year 2014 by the leading European wine magazine - Decanter Magazine – Famille Perrin is now the largest owner of vineyards in the best terroirs of the Southern Rhone Valley. Both a pioneer and visionary family: a pioneer in organic farming since 1953 and in biodynamic winegrowing since 1970, the first to have used the Rhone varietals in the U.S. and to believe in the potential of Paso Robles from 1989. The Family also promote its region through the L’Oustalet restaurant and hotel, at the heart of a winegrowing village in Gigondas.


The entire harvest is destemmed. The Syrah is vinified in wooden truncated tanks that are punched down and pumped over. The Grenache is vinified in stainless steel tanks. The Syrah is partly aged in one year old oak barrels. The wine ages for at least 6 months before being released. The wine shows wonderful freshness, with notes of ripe dark berries, hints of violet and sweet spices. There is a generous mouthfeel, with robust but supple tannins.
