One of the largest AOC wine regions in the South of France, Côtes du Rhône (C.D.R.) is an area of 200km from north-south and 100km from east-west along the Rhône river. The Plantevin family owns a total of 35ha of vineyards and some olive orchards. Maison Plantevin vinifies 20 ha of the grapes under our own brand and the rest of them are supplied to the local cooperative caves. The vineyards are interspersed throughout more than 40 different sites from hillside to flat land at an altitudes from 100 to 250m. The area is defined as AOC Cotes du Rhône Villages Séguret, Sablet, Plan de Dieu, Rasteau and also AOC Cotes du Rhone. Our passionate wine maker Laurent Plantevin is the first generation (as part of the 6th generation of vine growers of the Plantevin family) who established his own winery.
In 2007, his first vinification was started in the corner of his fathers shed. He borrowed 1ha of his father's grapes and vinified 1 tank of red wine. Since then his wine has achieved multiple awards in national and internationalwine competitions and appeared in the wine magazines. He continuously equipped and improved his wine facilities and in 2009 he finally established his own Estate. Wines are marketed of the name "Maison Plantevin".
The grapes of the Plantevin wines come from more than 40 different vineyard sites interspersed throughout the area defined as Côtes du Rhône Villages and "Rasteau" Cru.
