Enjoy this heavenly red wine made by the monks and nuns of Sainte Madeleine de Barroux Abbey!
 
Via Caritatis¬†means¬†‚Äúway of charity‚ÄĚ in Latin and the project represents an unusual collaboration between local winemakers and monks. Sainte Madeleine de Barroux Abbey teamed up with the¬†Beaumont de Ventoux cooperative to create some very special wines from their combined 30 hectares of vines¬†in the foothills of Mount Ventoux in the Southern Rhone Valley.

 

In previous years the abbey played an important role in local viticulture since the monks had chosen winemaking as their main activity. Interestingly, the Abbey's 10 hectares of vineyards include the first papal vineyard in France created in 1309. 

 
Conditions here are ideal for producing exceptional wines thanks to the altitude and cooling Mistral winds which help to moderate the heat of hot summer days. All of the work in the vineyard is done by hand, and the monks have been guided by one of the most accomplished consultant oenologists, Philippe Cambie, to select the very best plots to produce their top wines like Lux in Domino.


This luscious red blend is composed of Syrah from the monks' vineyards and Grenache from the nuns' enclosed vineyard. Following vinification, the wine is aged in a combination of concrete tanks and 20% in oak barrels for two years. Bursting with succulent dark fruit and a firm structure, this is an excellent wine to add to your cellar or to drink now alongside hearty red meat dishes.

Via Caritatis Lux in Domino is only available in the US through somMailier in very limited quantities, and with quality like this it is sure to be a sell-out! Order now to secure your bottles while stocks last.
