The total surface area of Domaine de Sainte Rose is 50 hectares, with planted vineyards amounting to 33 hectares, (80 acres). The vineyards are all situated on an argilo-calcaire soil type and stretch from the deeper, more fertile flood plains beside the River Thongue up onto the gravelly slopes of the plateau. “We work entirely in the Vin De Pays or what is now Indication Géographique Protégé (IGP) system, which allows us to plant the grape varieties outside of the AOC classification . We classify all our wines as Pays D’Oc or IGP Cotes de Thongue due to the situation of the Domaine right beside the river.”
This variation in the aspect of the vineyards has allowed a wide range of grape varieties to be planted. For example, the varieties that originate from cooler climates such as Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot have been planted on the deep soils on the plain and the indigenous southern French varieties of Syrah and Grenache are planted on the gravelly plateau.
