Domaine Valentin Vallès

Valentin Vallès is an organic and biodynamic vigneron who went it alone in 2013 after having worked for Eric Pfifferling at Domaine de l’Anglore in Tavel for eight years.

Based in Saint Quentin la Poterie, which is South of the Rhône in Gard, Valentin’s vineyard is located near a forest where Provence and Languedoc meet. The soils are fertile, well-irrigated and abundant in both clay and limestone. The vineyard’s high altitude lends to more acidity and freshness in the wines.

Stylistically all of Valentin’s wines are light, bright-fruited, lower in alcohol and incredibly fresh. Testament to the virtues of no sulphur, all of Valentin’s wines have an energy about them which makes them incredibly pleasant to drink.

Annual production: 7ha
