In the heart of Provence, on the border of the Drôme and the Vaucluse, the sun-drenched estate enjoys a unique microclimate. At the foot of the majestic Mont Ventoux, it benefits from a remarkable coolness and hygrometric stability. From this land, which is conducive to great wines due to its limestone soil, Amélie and Christian shape their wines as a family, to the rhythm of nature. This combination gives birth to subtle and mineral organic wines that express the full character of the terroir, in the Vinsobres, Côte du Rhône and Côte du Rhône Villages Puyméras appellations.
Since 1800, the Sauvayre family has been living on the land, which they farmed in mixed farming (apricot, asparagus, cherry, melon, etc.), then in vineyards. Successive generations have shaped the estate. 1978 was a pivotal year during which Christian took over the management of the estate and worked with the cooperative until 1987, when he decided to become a private winemaker. In 1984, he invested in a cellar dating from 1939 and 10 hectares of vines. Over time, he bought other plots of land in the surrounding area. Nowadays, the estate covers more than 45 hectares. Amélie, his daughter, who has joined the family business, now accompanies her father in the making of their wines. This father-daughter duo, in search of the perfect balance in each of their wines, pays tribute to their fabulous terroir. In 2019, Amélie becomes the manager of the estate, honouring the family legacy.
It is also the fruit of the unique and indefectible bond between a father and his daughter, this sharing of values, listening and privileged communication, which allows them to perpetuate traditions while combining modernity and environmental respect. All of Christian's know-how passed on with passion to his daughter, but also simplicity and humility in the face of nature are the key ingredients in the conception of the wines of the Puy du Maupas estate.
