France from Auguste Clape

The Clape family was forced to move to the Rhone valley in the early 20th century from Languedoc as grower strikes caused business to be completely unfeasible. Auguste Clape broke the trend in the Cornas region, by bottling his own wine, a move which many winegrowers followed.

Domaine Auguste Clape farms these near 8ha of vineyards, growing mostly Syrah with a tiny plot of Marsanne for a Saint Peray Blanc.
