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. Successive layers of fluvial and calcareous marine sediments formed reliefs and geological diversities in the Southern Rhône. The valley’s soils consists nowadays of four different types of rock: granite, sandy silica, limestone and clay. Here the bedrock plays a major role by allowing different access to water and nutrients depending on the soils compositions.

A Passionate Lineage

Domaine Le Sang des Cailloux was founded in 1975 by Serge Fergioule in the appellation of Vacqueyras with most of the vineyards planted on the plateau of Sarrians, surrounded by "garrigues". Here, it's all about the vines. The vineyard is grown following biodynamic principles. The management philosophy and techniques have helped to create vineyards that are bursting with vitality and biodiversity. This gives Serge a raw material of grapes that are both more expressive of their origins as well as having lower pH levels. This is turn has brought more freshness to the wines as well as enabling Serge to use lower levels of sulphites.
