About Domaine des Pentelines
The Kandler Family has acquired this amazing vineyard of 24ha located in South Rhône Valley between Avignon, the UNESCO listed city of Popes, and
Châteauneuf du Pape, known to produce the most famous Côtes du Rhône wines.
The AB certified vineyard produces 100% organic wines on « galets roulés » (Peebles) soil which made Châteauneuf du Pape wines so famous. This soil gives amazing fresh
and mineral tastes to the wines and the aromas are even more sublimated by the organic preserved grapes.
A diverse varietals selection with a mix of young and old vines offers a unique choice to produce stylish premium red and white wines from Grenache Noir, Syrah, Carignan, Mourvèdre, Marselan, Cinsault, Clairette, Marsanne, Roussanne or Grenache Blanc.
The Vineyard is orientated to the West and water is well drained thanks to its « Pentelines » which means « soft slopes » in local language and describes the litlle
slopes running downhill towards the city of Avignon and from where you can admire the old fortified city of Popes.
A new wine cellar is going to be built in order to be able to produce premium wines with the latest vinification technology and the same « grands crus » oak barrels that we
use at Château Tourril in Languedoc.
About the Kandler Family Wine Group The Kandler family came from the sea before landing in LanguedocRoussillon 30 years ago. After creating a company specialized in professional sailing and at a time when few believed in its potential, the French-German family bought a remote vineyard in the Minervois region, between land and
sea, close to Carcassonne and the Canal du Midi, both on UNESCO’s Heritage List. After making it an international success with Stephan Kandler at the helm, the Kandler Family Wine Group has grown with the creation of La Tour du Tourril, a custom wines business, and finally the purchase of Domaine des Pentelines.
