Boutinot’s love affair with the Southern Rhône spans thirty years of making wine in the region. In 2010 the relationship was sealed with the purchase of a winery and vineyards above the village of Cairanne. Domaine Boutinot’s seven vineyards all fall within the Cairanne Cru map, sanctioned in 2016 when Cairanne was granted its own appellation status.
By working with our vigneron neighbours, we help to revive traditional varieties such as Cinsault and Counoise, and in the cellar we prefer time-honoured winemaking methods such as a long cuvasion aided only by natural yeasts, manual pigeage and patient maturation in a nursery of French oak barrels. Our signature range “Fide et Arte” aims to express the very best from this diverse region, working with nature both in the vineyard and the winery; little intervention, but a lot of patience from our winemakers.
