About this wine
Our Syrah is grown on the beautiful hills of Saint-Joseph in France’s Northern Rhône, specifically the vineyards of La Madone, Morzelas, Brive, La Côte and Chatre in the municipality of Malleval in the north of the region. The vineyards are managed conventionally with some spraying during planting and during the growing season. Insecticides and herbicides are not used. Johan Verrier is the grower and La Madone, Morzelas & Brive was planted some 45 years ago and La Côte 20 years ago by his grandfather. Chatre is the youngest of the vineyards, and was planted by Johan himself 6 to 68 years ago when he caught the 0.4-hectare little piece of land in a steep south end north of the village of Malleval.
