Boutinot Rhône | The Wine Of The Rhône, France


There’s something very special about the southern Rhône: beautiful but tough, craggy yet easy on the eye, it has a “texture” you can practically inhale. This place just oozes history and colour, with traditions carved over centuries.

Our love affair with this region began in the early 1980s, when we first began making wine here. From the climate, the grapes, and the terroir, to the people and the cuisine – there’s no doubt that, for people like us, with an ambition to make great wines, the southern Rhône has it all.

Ten years ago, we spotted the potential of Cairanne when we released our first vintage of La Côte Sauvage. So it seemed natural, when a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity arose to buy a spectacular plot of vineyards in Cairanne, that we should choose to establish our winery here as well.

Now we have several plots of old vines we can call our own, as well as a working winery and cellar we are re-furbishing with loving care. Our dream is to create wines with world-wide recognition; wines which are fairly priced and wines above all, are made to be enjoyed.
