Variety: Syrah, Grenache, Clairette, Picpoul, and Bourboulenc
Multiple generations of Lafond winemakers date back to 1780. The family forms much of the current identity of the appellation of Tavel. In addition to their rose production, the family also produces Cote-du-Rhone, Lirac, and Chateauneuf du Pape. Not only are the wines among the region’s best, but the value is hard to beat. Their farming is certified organic. Says microbiologist Lydia Bourguignon, "Wine is like a concert: The land is the score, the vine is the instrument and the winegrower is the musician.”
Tavel is the only appellation in France to focus solely on rosé production. The blend is classic southern Rhone style with Grenache, Cinsault, and Syrah coming together from organic vines over 40 years in age. The wine ages in both stainless steel and large used barrels.
