Description

Via Caritatis – Chardonnay – Provence white

The wine story

Via Caritatis is a selection of the best wines made by the monks and nuns of two local abbeys, also by some small vignerons, on the steep slopes of Mont Ventoux, in Provence.

Most of the vineyards are terraced and all the work must be done by hand: ploughing, pruning, tying, budding and finally picking…. The terraces also have to be maintained, sometimes rebuilt. The monks and nuns take care of preserving the variety and beauty of the Provençal landscape and also grow fruit and olive trees.

 

For this wine, the grapes are picked at dawn, sorted, slightly pressed, with a cold and slow fermentation and ageing 6 months on a thin layer of lees.

Favorite Pairing

Fresh flowery wine thar will pair well with all sorts of salads and veggies, seafood, fried chicken and cheese.

The Region

This northern part of Provence was first planted in vines in 1309 when, to escape the turmoils in Rome, Pope Clément V came to reside in a local abbey while his Palace in Avignon was being built. The Pope and his cardinals and priests needed wine for Mass, and also for their pleasure…

The cooler climate and strong wind called Mistral keep the vines naturally healthy.
