Overview

The name Calendal comes from a Provencal poem by Frederik Mistral. A fisherman, Calendal, is deeply in love with the beautiful Estérelle. Just like the two friends’ love for the soil of Provence and its fruits – the wines. Poetics aside, Calendal started out as an exceptional vineyard of Mourvèdre that Philippe Cambie just couldn’t pass up. Over the years he has added some vines of Grenache to his holdings so the blend is roughly equal parts Mourvèdre and Grenache at this point.
