" Minerality, tightness, elegance . . . The unique style of Château-Grillet derives from careful vinification techniques, respecting the greatness of the terroir. A fascinating adventure"

Soil Specificity

The soils in the Rhone Valley are the result of a geological collision between the Massif Central and the Alps, creating the valley. This region can be split into two sub-regions, Northern and Southern Rhône. The granitic rocks of Northern Rhône are the consequences of volcanic activity in the Massif Central three hundred million years ago. From Vienne to Valence, granite soils and very narrow steep slopes over are making ideal the cultivation of Syrah on terraced vineyards, bordered by walls that retain the earth.

History / Ethos

Château Grillet is a small appellation and monopoly within the wider Condrieu region. This 4 hectares estate makes only white wines from the Viognier grape variety. This vineyard was part of the very first appellations created in France in 1936, although the history of Château Grillet goes back to the third century. Since 2011, investments have been made to ensure the quality is back to the highest standards. Frederic Engerer converted the estate to certified organic and aims for the highest quality of wines.
