The wines at Saint Estève de Néri qualify for the appellation AOC Luberon by virtue of the grapes used. The varieties are Grenache noir and Syrah for the reds and rosés and Grenache Blanc and Ugni Blanc for the whites. We also use Chardonnay in our Vin de Pays. The wines are produced in a modern hillside winery using temperature controlled stainless steel fermentation tanks.
Our Chardonnay wine is vinified and aged with oak as is some of our syrah which is aged in oak for up to 12 months.
We produce two ranges of wines; our Château cuvées are from the best parcels and hand picked. The Néri range, Expression du Terroir is a simpler less complicated wines produced to be drunk young.
