Domaine Faverot - Vineyard

Domaine Faverot is a family run winery and cellar, established in 1920 and completely restored in 1999 by the Faverot de Kerbrech family. Situtated in the sun-baked foothills of the Luberon range of mountains south east of Avignon, it nestles among the famous "perched villages of the Luberon".

It covers 7 hectares of vines planted in the Appellation controlled area of Côtes du Luberon. The varieties are Syrah, Grenache, Mouvèdre and Carignan for the reds and rosé and Grenache Gris, Rolle and Roussanne for the white.


Vineyards
The soil varieties found at Domaine Faverot are a mixture of sandy loams and river bed scree over limestone.
In the appelation controlée of the Côtes du Luberon the vines are traditionally trained as bush vines "en gobelet" or on trellissed cordons with vertical shoot positioning.

Domaine Faverot comprises several parcels of vines, some of which were planted as long ago as 1920 and 1945 as well as in the "60"s and the "70"s.

The vines are cultivated organically without recourse to chemical fertilisers, pesticides and herbicides. The production of grape bunches is voluntarily limited to around 8 bunches per vine giving fairly low yield of between 30 to 40 hl/ha. This ensures a greater concentration of juice in the grapes leading to a higher quality wine.
