Domaine Bernard Gripa is located in the small town of Mauves, well-known as the cradle of Saint-Joseph appellation. On the steep granite slopes surrounding the village, Bernard and his son Fabrice take meticulous care of the 12 ha of vines including some old vines in the nearby appellation of Saint-Péray. The plots are all located in a 3 kilometer stretch and the soils are ploughed manually (weed killer in the steepest slopes). Depending on the vintage the grapes are partially destemmed before fermentation in concrete tanks, ageing takes place in demi-muids and old barrels for both red and white wines.
Wines crafted there are fresh, racy, revealing the expression of this exceptional granitic terroir. The Saint-Péray is among the best wines of the area with a mineral and zesty profile.
