Overview

Some years later creating Domaine d’Andezon, Eric tasted a sample of wine from spectacular parcel of old vine Grenache from the village of Signargues which would be developed into “La Granacha.” Created in 2000, its name is a nod to the Spanish origin of this varietal as well as the name of this variety in the local dialect. A small amount of Mourvèdre is included in the final blend.
