Located in Rasteau, Domaine du Trapadis cultivates 32 hectares of vines in several AOPs, including the one named after the village, but also Cairanne and Roeix. Césaire Brun, Helen Durand's great grandfather, and Théophile Chavarin, her second great grandfather, owned the estate in 1850. In 1942, with the marriage of Henriette Brun and René Chavarin, the estate was unified. In 1990, Helen Durand, their son, sold her first bottles at the age of 16! The name Trapadis means "hole" in Provençal and echoes the underground gallery dug into the plot of Grenache vines planted in 1922, where the spring that feeds the hamlet originates. Helen Durand cultivates the vines organically and favours crisp ripeness, far from any jammy fruit, to produce aromatic, fresh wines, free of woodiness, in order to best reveal her Côtes-du-Rhône Villages terroirs. Don't miss the white wine and also the Rasteau muté, which is a real treat.
